The Tour de Cure was made aware of The Jersey Project book via this blog and consequently made contact with Bill ‘The Bike Guy’ Humphrey’s to see how to get a copy in Australia. After learning it was not available here, they thought that bringing in this book to help raise funds for the Tour de Cure was a logical choice and one Bill was excited to be involved with. Even if you already donate to other charities and don’t have a connection to cancer, if you’re interested in this fascinating book, why not buy it from the Tour de Cure? Everyone wins.
Like Blazing Saddles, The Rider, Dog In A Hat, and many others, this is a book that every cycling enthusiast should have in their collection.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Tour de Cure, they are a charity organisation who actively raises money to fund cancer projects in the following areas:
- Research projects focused to help find a cure for cancer;
- Support projects for those suffering with the journey of cancer;
- Prevention and projects focused on education and awareness.
This year the Tour de Cure have raised over $2M and for those of you who have ever been affected by this ugly disease, you’ll understand the importance of these projects and their efforts. Well done guys!
