Vow cyclists a Top 10 fundraiser for The Smith Family (Nov 2, 2010)
Nov 2, 2010.
A team of cyclists from Vow Financial got on their bikes and raised more than $13,648 for The Smith Family charity at this year's Around the Bay in A Day in Victoria.
The five-member crew, which included Vow Financial's CEO Jeff Zulman, is now placed 9th overall on The Smith Family's fundraising leader board, contributing to a $1 million total to be used to help disadvantaged children.
Thousands of riders of all ages cycled on sections or the entire route around Port Phillip Bay on the October 17 event.
The Smith Family's Victorian General Manager Heather Le Roy thanked Vow Financial for its tremendous support in 2010.
"We're delighted to see a team from Vow Financial riding in the event this year and going the extra mile to help The Smith Family reach its $1 million target," she said.
"Thanks to this support, we can give 34 disadvantaged primary school children a range of learning and personal development opportunities, such as access to tutors and mentors, to support their education and help them reach their potential."
Vow's marketing manager Matt Mitchener said: "We not only had a great bunch of dedicated and determined riders, but also fantastic support from our broker and business network partners who got behind such a great cause."
The Vow Financial team was proudly supported by Beam Corp and Citibank.
