Dear Friends and Colleagues
We are delighted to announce QBE Aviation as Corporate Sponsor for the Aerosure Tour De Chance 2014.
“QBE is the largest Aviation Insurer in Australasia and provides a range of aviation insurance products, principally for general aviation, in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific region. QBE has been proudly involved with the aviation industry for 50 years.
QBE’s have a range of expertise in a team that includes pilots, engineers and aircraft owners who have vast experience in underwriting, claims handling and providing value added service to the aviation industry. These experienced and dedicated resources ensure clients receive professional service from specialists who have an intimate understanding of local conditions.”
QBE Aviation’s commitment as a Major Sponsor shows outstanding support for what is a great cause but we still have plenty to go and would encourage to lend your support as well.
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.
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
