Breaking the cancer cycle

28 Aug 2012

A team of ANZ Docklands staff is aiming to raise $50,000 for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre by taking part in a 200 km bike ride next month.

Over 30 staff from ANZ Docklands are taking part in the two-day Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Participant Corbert Wilson said the ride involved a return cycle from Melbourne to Healesville, taking different routes both ways.

He said participants pledged to raise a minimum of $2500 each when they signed up for the ride.

Steve Morgan, ANZ general manager of credit assessment and retail operations, helped organise the ANZ team.

Mr Morgan said it was the first time the ride was being held in Victoria and that the team had raised $32,000 so far.

The team is raising money in a variety of ways including a bake-off competition featuring a visit from Beau of MasterChef fame.

Team members have also been busy collecting from friends and family.

One team member held a Christmas-in-July event and will be conducting a winery bus tour in order to raise funds.

The team is not training formally but many ride to work or arrange weekend rides together.

About half the team would describe themselves as cyclists, while others are getting back on the bike for the ride.

“Some claim not to have been on a bike since they were kids,” Steve said.

Luckily for those cyclists, they say you never forget.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer will be held on October 27 and 28.
