The 'Cycle 4 Change' team rode more than 500 kilometres around central northern Tasmania and raised over $56,000 for Southern Cross Kids Camps, an organisation that provides camps and a 'week of happy memories' for kids who have been subjected to abuse and neglect. Based in Launceston, the team cycled to a diverse range of locations including Beauty Point, Scottsdale, Ben Lomond and Lilydale. Scroll down for details of each day of riding and photos.
We were aiming to raise $50,000 for Southern Cross Kids Camps - enough to cover two full camps. After a massive effort from our team, sponsors and supporters, we raised $56,247.71. Well done to all involved!

Meet the Team
I want to be part of Cycle4Change’s 2018 ride, because it will change kids' lives. Every child is valuable and deserves to live an outstanding life. Southern Cross helps kids most in need overcome adversity and have a great hope for the future. I want to be part of that!
