Ride for a child in need

Kids in classroom

Whether you’re riding 20km or 300km, your United Energy Around the Bay ride could change the lives of Australian children in need and give them the chance at a better future.

Your team’s fundraising support will help children in need access the essentials they need such as school books, school bags, a uniform and the tools and support they need to thrive at school, so they can break the cycle of poverty.

Plus you can use your fundraising page to track your training via Strava or Map My Ride, update your blog and share your story via social media in the lead up to the big day.
