The 2022 MACA Cancer 200 Ride for Research raises $8.5 million to support cancer research in WA
The 2022 MACA Cancer 200 Ride for Research was staged over the weekend with 1,500 riders riding 200kms over two days and raising a remarkable $8.5 million to support cancer research in WA at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
All riders set off (in teams) on Saturday morning at 7am from Optus Stadium with a light northerly breeze at their back, arriving in Mandurah from late morning to mid afternoon.
Riders were treated to an evening of great food, drinks and entertainment, including inspirational & emotional stories from many who have been touched recently by cancer within the Perkins / MACA Cancer 200 community. Everyone stayed in Mandurah overnight with over 700 riders camping at the Satellite venue in Mandurah.
The weather was beautiful on both days, and riders were blessed with the breeze turning around on Sunday morning to a south westerly helping their journey back to Perth, returning to the Optus Stadium precinct and end of ride celebrations back at The Camfield.
As official hydration partner, eniQ products were available throughout the two days to ensure all riders were well hydrated.
Our inaugural Team eniQ set a fundraising target of $20,000 and finished just shy of $30,000 which is a fantastic result. Team eniQ was prominent out on the road throughout the weekend with its Custom Kit designed & supplied by Pedal Mafia.
Team eniQ included John Gardner, David Sierakowski, Tim Wise, Chris Rimmer, Paul Vines, Cameron Tweedie, Travis Young and Gary Hansson.
"After three years as a supplier of hydration products to the Ride we decided that in 2022 we needed to roll our sleeves up and become a true partner of the Ride. So we entered a team this year and I couldn't be prouder of their efforts. Not only did our team stick together for the entire weekend, they all dug deep and raised nearly $30k for the Perkins!!" said eniQ CEO Tim Scott-Branagan.
"The MACA Cancer 200 Ride for Research is truly a world class event. Most importantly, every one of our riders had a wonderful experience and has indicated they would like to ride again next year. So we're hoping to build on that and at least double our team and fund raising efforts next year!" said Scott-Branagan.
