Every year The Common Good hosts the Cycle of Giving; a cycling event to raise funds for organ transplant research. The Prince Charles Hospital is one of the leading organ and tissue transplant facilities in Australia, and every dollar raised through the Cycle of Giving goes to supporting cutting edge organ transplant research at the facility. With registration costs starting at $40, $70 & $80 you can participate in a 25, 65 or 100 kilometre ride on the 5th of March 2017.
The ride starts from Landsborough, Caboolture or Redcliffe, and thanks to our friends at Queensland Rail there will be a special charter train to take participants from Brisbane to their starting points.
Funds raised in this year’s Cycle of Giving will help identify new technologies and treatments to bridge the gap to transplant, along with ways of making more donated organs viable for transplant.Register Donate to a Participant or Team Event Information
1500 Australian lives every year are entirely dependent on receiving organ transplants. Without enough suitable donors, sadly a portion of these people will pass away while waiting. The passionate researchers at The Prince Charles Hospital have decided to step in and improve current organ transplant technologies, so that more people can receive the life-saving surgery they need.
By taking part in the Cycle of Giving, you are part of the team finding solutions; whether it’s developing mechanical assist devices to help people whilst on the waiting list, looking into stem cell therapy for better post-transplant outcomes or improving revolutionary transplant technology, every hour you help power is crucial.
