I've received this heads up via inter-office email and thought it could be of interest to you good people.
The Cycling Promotion Fund is calling for nominations to the Australian Bicycling Achievement Awards. This will be the 8th year these highly recognised National Awards will be conducted. The Cycling Promotion Fund is delighted to announce the National Heart Foundation of Australia as principal partner for the Australian Bicycling Achievement Awards. The support from the Heart Foundation, which is such a respected national cardiovascular health and research organisation, is an enormous boost in the current challenging economic environment for the Awards and comes at a time of increasing concern about rising obesity and falling levels of physical activity among our school children and Australian families.
Nominations close on 5pm, Monday 12th April 2010
Maybe you know of a hard-working person in your area, a cycling group, local school, bicycle shop, bicycle-friendly business, local council or shire, councillor, politician or an organisation that deserves recognition from the cycling community? The Cycling Promotion Fund believes that recognising innovation and commitment is vital in maintaining momentum and sustaining action around Australia. To achieve this we established the Bicycling Achievement Awards in 2002.
