Airservices Australia join the Aerosure Tour de Chance 2014 as Major Corporate Sponsor

Dear Friends and Colleagues,           

I am delighted to announce Airservices Australia as Major Corporate Sponsor for the Aerosure Tour De Chance 2014

“Airservices Australia is a government-owned corporation providing safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible services to the aviation industry. Airservices Australia manages air traffic operations for over 80 million passengers on more than four million flights every year.

Airservices Australia provides the aviation industry with aeronautical data, telecommunications, navigation services and aviation rescue and fire fighting services.

Airservices Australia employ more than 4000 staff, with approximately 1000 air traffic controllers, working from two major centres in Melbourne and Brisbane and 29 towers at international and regional airports.”

We will be cycling from Brisbane to Sydney to hopefully raise $250,000 for a wonderful Australian charity called Fighting Chance that is very special to me.

Not only has Aerosure supported the tour and Fighting Chance by becoming the Major Corporate partner for 2014 but I have personally committed my body to the cause as well, and will be participating in the ride for the whole 1,100 kilometres of the tour.

To make your tax deductible donation, please use this link:http://makingadifference.gofundraise.com.au/page/RectorG

You will automatically receive a tax receipt for your donation and the funds will be channelled directly to Fighting Chance.

Fighting Chance provides innovative programs for youths and young adults with physical disabilities.

Unfortunately far too many young and adult Australians with significant physical disabilities continue to lack opportunities to engage in purposeful and fulfilling education, skill development and work experience activities.

The money we will raise through theAerosure Tour de Chance 2014 (amongst other things) will double the current number of places available for physically disabled participants.

I have included below a link below that takes you straight into the Fighting Chance website and gives a lot of detail on how the money raised will be used.

You can find out more about the wonderful work Fighting Chance do via their websitehttp://www.fightingchance.org.au and/or via Facebook athttps://www.facebook.com/fightingchanceaustralia.

In addition, you will be also be able to follow our ride preparations, fund raising and sponsorship progress on our ‘Aerosure Tour de Chance 2014′ websitehttp://www.tourdechance.com.au.

One last thing – can I ask that you please take a minute or two to think about friends in your network that you feel comfortable sharing this with – it is a really good thing that we are doing here!

Thank you very much once again and we all genuinely appreciate your support
