Five cyclists are pedalling 100km for Tour de PIF – can you help us reach our goal?
37% of homeless people – which is 45,000 – are under 25.
Five of RCC’s fitness guns are taking on the 2023 Tour de PIF, cycling up to 100km to raise vital funds for the Property Industry Foundation – an independent not-for-profit that increases the number of bedrooms available for homeless youth.
In 2022 alone, the Property Industry Foundation built or refurbished five houses, developing 20 more bedrooms to the market for vulnerable youth. This brings their total to 238 bedrooms, home to 335 young people, and 86,870 safe nights of sleep.
We are proud to be joining the ranks of corporate partners around Australia who are fundraising to bring 44 bedrooms to life in 2023. When asked about the importance of having their own bedroom, a former resident said, “I had my own room, my own things and people who cared about me. Every morning I knew that my Carer and I could have breakfast together, and after a while, I actually wanted to come home for family dinners.
The best part was that I knew I wasn’t leaving any time soon. I could start thinking about my future. I made good friends in the Lighthouse community and my Carers helped me to start making positive choices.”
We’re so proud of our incredible riders who are taking part in this challenge – pushing themselves, and raising much-needed funds at the same time!
