Fitz's Challenge - Canberra’s long distance cycling event – will be held on Sunday 25 October 2015 to provide participants the chance to choose their challenge from one of five course distances while also raising much needed funds for The Kids’ Cancer Project.

*       165 km Fitz's Classic

All courses are set across Canberra’s Brindabella Ranges and enable participants to ride their chosen challenge distance within a supported environment.

Fitz’s Challenge is an inclusive event open to participants 12 years and older (those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult).

Every day, four Australian families hear the words 'your child has cancer’. Childhood Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease of Australian children, the causes are unknown and there is no prevention – the only way to help children is through continued research to find a cure.

You can support a cure by creating your personalised hero page <http://curekidscancer.org.au/event/fitzs2015>  today and fundraising for The Kids’ Cancer Project.
