Insurance Advisernet Foundation Donates $50,000 to Tour De Cure
The Insurance Advisernet Foundation has once again shown its commitment to supporting charitable causes by donating $50,000 to Tour De Cure, a leading Australian charity that raises funds for cancer research, prevention, and support services.
Tour De Cure is an annual cycling event that takes place across multiple stages and locations, covering thousands of kilometres across Australia. The event brings together cyclists from all walks of life, united in the fight against cancer. Since its inception in 2007, Tour De Cure has raised $99 million for cancer research, prevention, and support services, funded 771 world-class cancer projects and achieved 100 major cancer breakthroughs.
This year, Insurance Advisernet's donation will go towards funding cancer research, with the goal of finding new and innovative treatments that will ultimately help to save lives. In addition to the donation, several members of the Insurance Advisernet team are also taking part in the ride, including Authorised Representatives Gareth Jones, Matt Swayn, and Adam Hines, along with Central Regional Manager Simon Elliot.
Speaking about the donation, Insurance Advisernet MD Shaun Standfield said, "We are proud to support Tour De Cure and the vital work that they do to combat cancer. It is an honour to contribute to such a worthy cause, and we commend our team members for their dedication and commitment to this important event."
Mark Beretta, Tour De Cure Ambassador and Channel 7 Sunrise Presenter, received the cheque live on air, thanking the Insurance Advisernet team for their generosity and ongoing support. He also highlighted the significant impact that the donation will have on cancer research, prevention, and support services.
According to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, cancer is one of the leading causes of death in Australia, with an estimated 150,000 new cases diagnosed each year. The work of charities like Tour De Cure is critical in helping to reduce the incidence and impact of cancer, through research, prevention, and support services.
