You Choose, You Decide
The Clare Classic is offering a refreshing approach to event fundraising. Our mission is to provide both individual riders and teams the opportunity to fundraise for whichever charity they wish to support.
We are giving the power back to riders. You choose a cause you are passionate about.
Since the inaugural Bowral Classic event in 2016, the Classic events have raised over $300,000 for charities across Australia.
All charities can participate and use the Clare Classic event to raise much needed funds. For our preferred charity partners, please see below.

The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to helping those with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders survive and then live a better quality of life. Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are all types of blood cancer and they can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time. Another 41 Australians are diagnosed each and every day, that’s one person every 36 minutes.
Support for the Leukaemia Foundation helps accelerate blood cancer research, create broader access to supportive care and information and amplify the voice of the blood cancer community.

3 SIMPLE TIPS TO SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISING
Make your fundraising page as personalised as possible! Change the font, include pictures, even include a video! Show your donors why you care and how their support will make a difference.
Dare yourself! Make a promise to your donors: if you reach a certain target, you’ll… Shave your head, bake them all cookies, ride that extra 50km, or anything else you can think of! It’s a great way to incentivise donors and keep those funds coming once you’ve hit your target.
3. Social Media
It’s not real unless it’s on Facebook! Make an initial status when you first create your page and update all your friends and family on your progress. Have a count down, put up pictures, and remind everyone that they can help make a difference. Also – don’t forget about Instagram! Gramming your progress and using #hashtags are a great way of connecting with like-minded people and getting some inspiration and motivation along the way.
