With their mission to cure cancer and their inspiring approach of riding to cure cancer, Tour de Cure (TDC) is a Tier one cancer charity. Since 2007, they have raised in excess of $30 million and have funded over 252 cancer research, support and prevention projects. Their rigorous and respected selection process has resulted in 18 scientifically-recognised cancer breakthroughs.
Manrags was approached by Tour de Cure in 2016 to join as an Essential Partner, which we eagerly accepted. As an Essential Partner, the Team at Manrags look for every opportunity to raise much needed funds to support the initiatives led by Tour De Cure to find a Cure for Cancer.
In 2016, Manrags donated close to $20,000 in product to the riders, support crew and attendees of Tour de Cure’s inaugural Snow Ball. In 2016 alone, TDC raised over $6 million in funds, which were allocated to educating children across Australia on cancer prevention as well as allocating a significant portion to cancer research initiatives.
In 2017, the team at Manrags plan on doubling our contribution to $40,000 through a number of initiatives by providing product but also in team up with the riders and fundraisers to allow customers to opt in and dedicate part of their subscription funds to TDC.
The Manrags and Tour de Cure relationship was the catalyst for our cycling inspired socks.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with Tour de Cure and growing on our donations and contributions for the year to come.
