ONTHEGO’s CEO, Mick Spencer, To Take on the “Red Centre Challenge” In September
Our CEO, Mick Spencer, is set to take on one of his biggest challenges yet, the Tour de Kids Red Centre Challenge! This September Mick will join 15 other elite athletes to ride 370km’s across some of Australia’s most rugged terrain.
The challenge will take our CEO from Alice Springs through the MacDonald Ranges, past the Owen and Telegraph Stations and along the Todd River. By joining the team, ONTHEGO will be actively supporting the Tour de Kids commitment to raise $400,000 annually for the next three years.
“I’m really looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone. What a great opportunity to get amongst some amazing business leaders where we put our brains together to help those in need,” Mick says of the upcoming challenge.
All funds raised from the challenge will go towards the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s “Healthier Future” initiative. This initiative aims to close the gap by partnering Captain Starlight alongside health professionals to help remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Starlight is in a unique position being able to support long term social change with the prevention of chronic disease in these communities.
“Children in developing parts of Australia need support, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. Unfortunately, the support is just not like it is in big cities,” Mick explains.
Each challenge participant needs to raise a minimum of $5,000 which means we need your help! If you are in a position where you are able to donate we would love to have you on board. Plus, all donations are tax deductible, AND we will give you 20% off your next ONTHEGO order if you donate more than $20.00.
