One lucky Raiders fan will win the trip of a life time to Shanghai in China, by supporting Tour de Cure in the lead up to the Raiders v Bulldogs match at GIO Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Four Raiders players will be put to the test in a ‘Raiders pursuit race’ at halftime of the Raiders v Bulldogs match on Sunday, with each player representing a fan who bids for their riding services on www.allbids.com.au
Josh McCrone, Bill Tupou, Jeremy Hawkins and Luke Page will compete in a three lap pursuit race at halftime on Sunday, with each rider representing the winners of an online auction in the lead up to the race. The winning rider’s successful bidder will then win the trip for two to Shanghai!
All proceeds of the auction will go to Tour de Cure, an organisation who raises money for cancer research. Information on Tour de Cure can be found at www.tourdecure.com.au
Fans can bid from now up until 12.00pm on Saturday (May 23) through www.allbids.com.au with the highest bidder for each player winning their services for the race.
Director of Corporate & Public Affairs for Huawei Jeremy Mitchell said the race on Sunday was designed to help promote the wonderful work Tour de Cure do for Cancer research and was an exciting way for people to help raise money for the cause.
“Tour de Cure is about riding to raise awareness and funds to cure cancer for all. Riding a bike has been chosen as a vehicle to cure cancer as it promotes a healthy lifestyle which is key for preventing cancer and what a better way to do so then by seeing four Raiders stars racing around the ground on Sunday,” Mr Mitchell said. “All proceeds from the auction in the lead up to the race will go to Tour de Cure, who continues to strive towards breakthroughs in finding a cure for cancer.”
Raiders player Josh McCrone said the race on Sunday promised to be a lot of fun and the boys would be doing their best to try and win a trip to China for their respective bidders.
“Anyway we can help raise money for cancer research is great, but this particular concept promises to be a lot of fun and entertaining for the crowd on Sunday,” McCrone said. “I know the boys are very competitive in everything they do and I expect this to be the same on Sunday for this race.”
