How do I fundraise?

By registering to participate in the Powercor Tour de Depot, you are contributing 100% of your entry fee directly to the Charity Partner. However, the Powercor Tour de Depot is partnering with the charity fundraising website My Cause to allow people to take their contribution one step further. Once registered, you will be provided with the opportunity to establish your own My Cause page that will allow your family, friends and the community to sponsor you for your participation and raise additional funds for this important community charity.

I can’t ride a bike but am keen to get involved. What can I do?

There are plenty of ways you can get involved without having to jump on a bike. You could sponsor a family member or friend on their My Cause site, run a community based event such as a cake stall to raise money for our Charity Partner, encourage a local organisation to partner with the event or just join us at the Community Festival to cheer home those that have participated in the ride.

What do I get when I enter?

Your entry fee not only provides you with entry to the event and the opportunity to donate to a worthwhile cause – all entrants will also receive a Riders Pack including a Powercor Tour de Depot bag, t-shirt, hat, drink bottle, and additional partner giveaways.

You can collect your Riders Pack at the registration booth on Saturday 16 September at Victoria Park Lake from 10:00am until 4:00pm or on Sunday 17 September between 7:00am until 12:00pm
