Community: Chain Reaction Women’s Ride raises $360,000 for children in need


On Friday 5th November a group of 32 women riders embarked on the final, physical, leg of their journey fundraising for children in need.

The three day ride raised $360,000 for children in need supporting grassroots not-for-profit organisations Traction For Young People and White Ribbon Australia.

Traction For Young People empowers vulnerable young people to realise their future through action-based programs including the building of bicycles. Alongside these programs, Traction’s school education programs provide students who struggle with traditional learning, opportunities to develop skills and confidence.

The White Ribbon Australia movement works through a primary prevention approach in communities, schools and workplaces across the country aiming to stop men’s violence against women and children.

The three day Chain Reaction ride covered a total distance of 360kms, commencing in Brisbane before touring the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The women’s fundraising journey however started many weeks ago with numerous initiatives and events, alongside dedicated team training creating lifelong friendships amongst the riders.

‘Thank you to everyone who sponsored, supported and cheered us on along the way. Participating in this ride and supporting these two fantastic organisations was a privilege we will never forget,’ Emma Ross, HR Manager for Hall Chadwick QLD.

Hall Chadwick QLD was proud to sponsor Emma Ross and her riding team Grow Medical and support these fantastic organisations, contributing to the impressive fundraising effort by the riders.
