ICT solutions vendor, Huawei Australia, has presented a cheque for $50,000 to Tour De Cure, supporting the cause for the third consecutive year.

The Tour De Cure is charity dedicated to finding a cure for cancer, and hosts a number of major cycling events annually to raise funds for cancer research and education initiatives.

The 2013 Tour De Cure Signature Tour is a 1521km ride from Adelaide to Canberra. So far, the 2013 Signature Tour has raised more than $2 million, and aims to reach $2.3 million this year.

Huawei Australia corporate affairs director, Jeremy Mitchell, who also completed a two-day guest ride as part of Huawei’s sponsorship, presented the cheque to the charity on the Sunrise television show in Albury, NSW.

“We hope this $50,000 donation from Huawei Australia helps the Tour De Cure to reach its fundraising target, and gets us a bit closer to the goal of finding a cure for cancer,” Mitchell said.

Mitchell mentioned he completed his part in the ride in honour of his late father.

He rode in Tour Stages 2 and 3, from Victor Harbour to Meningie (143km) then from Meningie to Bordertown (161km).

Huawei will also support the cause with an additional $15,000 donation towards a celebration dinner at the conclusion of the tour, to be hosted at the National Press Club in Canberra.
