Le Tour de Taree
le Tour de Taree
The goal of le Tour de Taree has always been the same – to make a positive difference to the welfare of sick children and their families.
In 2019 the Club Taree Community Team is hosting their 5th Annual le Tour de Taree. Over the years we’ve had some massive Tours, but this year will be epic. We have more riders than ever before signed up to ride, and more ways to raise funds than ever before.
This year our team once again mirrors our ‘sister ride’ le Tour de France in travelling a total distance of 3460km over 23 days. Established in 2015 on a whim of a conversation, le Tour de Taree has seen a total of 64 different riders collectively ride 15,715.2km over 88 days in 628 hours to raise $96,596 for sick children and their families.
It was our Team that chose Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern NSW (RMHCNNSW) as the sole beneficiary of funds raised. It would be safe to say that back in April 2015 when the idea was conceived no one in the team would have been acutely aware of just how much Manning Valley families rely on the services and programs of RMHCNNSW.
Each week 12 families from the Manning Valley and the Great Lakes use the facilities of RMHCNNSW, equating to 624 local families every year calling on RMHCNNSW for support at their most vulnerable times.
le Tour de Taree continues to be our Signature Event, one that the entire team can participate in whether it be through riding, raising funds, and community engagement or support roles.
