Pink Pedal Challenge 2015

What is this adventure?

As part of this 13-day adventure, you will cycle from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Siem Reap, Cambodia, observing the changing landscapes and colourful culture of the Mekong Delta.

Through seemingly endless rice paddies, sugar-palm plantations and small villages, on this incredible adventure you’ll discover a feast for the senses, with every kilometre cycled revealing a new splendour. Spend a day immersed in the majesty and mysticism of the Angkor Temple Complex in Siem Reap and marvel at the magnificent spires of Angkor Wat. Explore historic Ho Chi Minh City with an experienced guide and wander the bustling streets of Phnom Penh. Challenge yourself and be rewarded on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure while raising vital funds to help BCNA support, inform, represent and connect Australians affected by breast cancer.

What will my impact be?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women. In fact, on any one day, 42 Australian women will hear the words “You have breast cancer”. As part of BCNA’s Pink Pedal Challenge 2015, with every kilometre you cover, you will raise vital funds to help us provide free programs, resources and support to all Australians affected by breast cancer no matter who they are or where they live.

Your fundraising will change lives:

  • $30 gives 25 breast cancer survivors a copy of The Beacon magazine, our free national magazine for women with breast cancer and their families.
  • $50 provides a newly diagnosed woman with a My Journey Kit, BCNA’s free, comprehensive information resource that offers easy to understand information about treatment and the ‘next steps’.
  • $200 allows one breast cancer survivor to attend a free community information forum with their partner, family or carer. With your help, we can continue to ensure Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care.
