TOUR DE CURE
Lexus is proud to support the Tour de Cure, an annual bike ride which was launched in 2007 to raise vital funds to find a cure for cancer. Committed to making a difference in the community, Lexus is passionate about getting involved with a cause that touches the lives of so many Australians.
Lexus contributes support vehicles to this challenging event, and some members of the Lexus team also participate in what will be one of the most gruelling yet rewarding events of their lives. The Tour de Cure is a battle of endurance that takes place across three Australian states and one territory.
Passionate about finding a cure
Many participants have very personal reasons for getting involved because someone close to them has been affected by cancer. The devastating loss of loved ones has instilled a passionate drive within them to help raise funds to beat a disease that touches so many people?s lives.
The money raised from the Tour de Cure goes directly to the people working on a cure for cancer, along with support groups and research groups. As well, work is done with schools and in programs that focus on prevention. All money raised is made to work hard, so donors can be assured that no matter how much they give, every cent is being used properly.
In the video below, a number of riders share their reasons for getting involved in the Tour de Cure.
