Tour of Jarrahdale Cycling Event in Jan 2015


Get a group of friends together and sign up for the Tour of Jarrahdale Medio & Piccolo Fondo on Sunday 18 January and help raise awareness and funds for Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation!

With the Piccolo distanced at 40 km and the Medio ay 80 km – this is a Ride event that would help you wash off the excess of Christmas and New Year as well as ensure that those of you with the continued focus will stay fit and ready for the whole summer season of cycling ahead. The Tour of Jarrahdale is also our developmental ride event towards our signature event – the City of Armadale Grand Fondo and in 2015 – and makes for an excellent progression for May 2015.

“CLCRF are a special organisation and we want you to ride with CLCRF in mind and in spirit. Please donate generously to this fund knowing that your effort on the bike as well as your wallet is translated to a good cause.”

Riding events in Perth are few and far between in the summer months and we aim to make a difference by providing such middle distance events. Find out more…

Guinness World Record Confirmed to Keep the Flame Alive for Perth!


It’s official! Perth has made its way into the record books for the world’s Longest Awareness Ribbon! Finally confirmed this week, the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF) were elated when they received the news that they are now Guinness World Record holders.

Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation worked with schools from across WA, along with families and members of the community to sign segments of yellow ribbon, all of which were then sewn together to reach the world record-breaking length.

The Keep the Flame Alive World Record Ribbon Day saw volunteers from all sectors of the West Australian community come together at Langley Park, in the City of Perth, on Saturday 19 April 2014 to take part in this momentous event. From children as young as three to grandparents, everyone gathered to help unfurl the ribbon and lay it out in the traditional awareness ribbon shape, which was then photographed from the air.

When the final length was reported of 1,940 metres, a cheer erupted from the crowd. This amazing result had smashed the previous world record for an awareness ribbon by 693 metres! The messages of hope and support for sick children are to help raise awareness of the need for continued research into childhood cancers.

The Longest Awareness Ribbon initiative was supported by The Hon Peter Collier MLC, Minister for Education, Perth’s Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi and the City of Perth.

“It’s fantastic to see such a great initiative taken to raise awareness for continued childhood cancer research, and it’s great that the city of Perth has yet another world record to add to its list of wonderful achievements.” said Lisa Scaffidi.

That’s not the end of the ribbon’s incredible story. The final destination for such an important piece of fabric, is the new Children’s Hospital, where it will hopefully be used for the opening in 2015. It will also enable future generations of children, desperate for hope, to read the messages of love and support, and inspire them to continue their fight.
