Hanover | ConnectEast Ride for HomeImportant announcement about the Ride for Home
After three great years Hanover and ConnectEast regret to advise that the Hanover ConnectEast Ride for Home on EastLink will not continue.
Unfortunately rising costs and a highly competitive fundraising market mean that we are unable to continue to deliver a cost effective event.
In partnership with ConnectEast, Hanover established the Ride for Home in 2010. With around 2,500 participants in 2010, the event grew substantially in 2011 with over 7,000 participants and $310,000 raised for Hanover. Hanover is proud to have developed a strong relationship with ConnectEast and greatly values the partnership over the past three years.
2012 saw substantial drops in fundraising revenue across the board for most fundraising events across Victoria and nationally. The majority of mass participation fundraising events experienced substantial drops in revenue in 2012, and the Ride for Home was no exception.
We are disappointed to see the end of this great event. Hanover truly appreciates the thousands of people who participated and supported the Ride for Home. Their involvement in the Ride for Home has made a difference - more people than ever know about Hanover's work with people experiencing homelessness and their fundraising has supported families and individuals into stable housing and education and employment.
We are tremendously grateful to the many individuals, businesses, supporters, sponsors, event ambassadors, community groups and importantly cyclists who have supported the Ride for Home since its inception in 2010.
We thank our committed sponsors for their support of the Ride for Home over the past three years and look forward to continued mutually beneficial relationships in the future.
We'd love for you to stay in touch with Hanover, and support our work.
