You Choose, You Decide
The Mudgee 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 $400,000 for charities across Australia.
All charities can participate and use the Mudgee Classic event to raise much needed funds.

Beyond Five is Australia’s first national charity supporting people affected by head and neck cancer.
Over 17,000 people are living in Australia with Head and Neck Cancer and nearly 5,000 people are newly diagnosed each year.
Head and Neck Cancer is one of the seven most common cancers affecting Australians, and with more than 10 different types, it is incredibly complex and diverse.
These cancers are not just caused by smoking and alcohol. The incidence of human papilloma virus (HPV) Head and Neck Cancer is expected to exceed cervical cancer and in many cases the cause of Head and Neck Cancer is unknown.
There is no screening for Head and Neck Cancer: Early detection and education is key.

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.
