Sisters of the Saddle


Hall Chadwick QLD is proud to sponsor once again the Sisters of the Saddle (SOTS) inaugural challenge, a charity bike ride from Brisbane to Toowoomba (and back!) that will take place over three gruelling days in October 2023. HCQ will be cheering on one of its own participating in this charity ride, People & Culture Manager, Emma Ross. The 350 KM bike ride aims to raise $300,000 for charity partners TRACTION and Zephyr Education Inc.

TRACTION delivers evidence-informed, hands-on learning and mentoring programs, to help young people engage in education and build the resilience and skills they need to thrive. They partner with schools and other government agencies to reach and engage with young people providing early intervention and prevention programs in a workshop environment, ‘on the tools’ approach, like building their bike to keep. The SOTS community is very proud to have contributed significant funds to enable the design of a program called Building Deadly, Riding Deadly. This program helps Indigenous young people build resilience, teamwork and leadership skills, develop their road safety and riding skills, and connect to country and culture.

Zephyr Education Inc. works to help children at domestic violence shelters resume their education by supplying them with everything they need to start at their new school. They supply or pay for school uniforms, shoes, textbooks and stationery, school bags, and all the other school essentials. They also cover resource fees for eLearning.

Hall Chadwick QLD is proud to support this incredible initiative, one that will deliver significant community impact now, and in future generations to come.

Departing on the 27th of October the peloton will arrive back in Yeerongpilly on the 29th of October to celebrate the completion of this incredible challenge.

We wish Emma and the Sisters of the Saddle riders all the best for the ride next month.
