Bike SA works closely with a number of charitable partners. Most are aligned to specific events, though we also develop strategies that are relevant year-round.
There are many reasons we work with charitable partners, typically focused on increasing participation in activities and raising awareness and funds for charities. We seek to develop long-term relationships that deliver sustained behaviour-change outcomes.
Charities bring to the table a range of benefits, including new markets and other relationships, as well as energy and, often, a vital pool of volunteers; plus of course more reasons to ride a bike.
Bike SA receives many queries and requests from charities regarding new fundraising rides. There is very limited capacity in our existing programme to add new events, though we encourage charities to get in touch. If your charity would like to put forward a proposal, or you would simply like to discuss any available opportunities, please contact the General Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or (08) 8168 9907.

The Heart Foundation - Go Red for Women
|In 2010 Bicycle SA has welcomed the Heart Foundation as a charity partner for Gear Up Girl SA. Most women don't know that heart disease is their number one killer. Go Red for Women is the Heart Foundation's campaign that unites women in the fight against heart disease - helping to raise awareness of the risks and promote healthier choices. Challenge the myths and share the facts about heart disease with your friends. |
