Mt Coot-tha cyclists raise thousands of dollars for Endeavour Foundation

Endeavour Foundation received a huge donation from Bicycle Queensland and the accounting and advisory network BDO following the recent BDO Brisbane Coot-tha Challenge cycling event.

CEO David Barbagallo received the cheque for more than $17,000 from the General Manager of Bicycle Queensland, Ben Wilson, and BDO Partner, Bernard Curran, at Endeavour Foundation’s Head Office in Cannon Hill.

Endeavour Foundation is the charity of choice for the event and CEO David Barbagallo is delighted and grateful.

“Our partnership with Bicycle Queensland and the BDO accounting and advisory network is extremely important to us and it’s a privilege to be part of such an iconic event as the BDO Brisbane Coot-tha Challenge,” Mr Barbagallo said.

“Whether a sponsored cyclist, a spectator or a supporter, Endeavour Foundation says a mighty ‘thank you’ to everyone who has helped to raise funds on our behalf, especially Bicycle Queensland and BDO for hosting the event.”

Thousands of cyclists took part in the event, many raising funds for Endeavour Foundation to support people with a disability throughout Queensland and in Sydney.

The General Manager of Bicycle Queensland , Ben Wilson, says the BDO Brisbane Coot-tha Challenge is important for everyone.

“It’s been a great journey and partnership between Bicycle Queensland, BDOs and Endeavour Foundation,” Mr Wilson said.

“We’ve had close to 10,000 cyclists riding over Mt Coot-tha during the event’s four years so well done to the people of Brisbane and beyond for having a go, keeping fit and supporting cycling and Endeavour Foundation through the BDO Brisbane Coot-tha Challenge.”

Endeavour Foundation’s cycling event – the Endeavour Challenge and Community Day - will be held in Toowoomba on 17th June with cyclists of all levels riding over one of three designated courses.
