The Westpac Ride for a Cure 2020 was an amazing tour, bigger and better than ever. Taking place from 8 to 10 March, the tour took in the spectacular scenery of Central West NSW and the Blue Mountains.
With funds from this tour, Westpac has now raised over $4.7 million for cancer research, support and prevention programs.

Our history of making a difference
In March 2017, coinciding with Westpac’s 200th anniversary, Westpac and Tour de Cure teamed up to launch the inaugural Westpac Tour 200 – a 3-day ride aiming to raise $500,000 for cancer research, support and prevention.
With the support of colleagues, family and friends, the Westpac Tour 200 exceeded expectations and raised over $1 million.
Backing up in March 2018, Westpac 201 saw the partnership between Westpac and Tour de Cure continue to grow, expanding to two 3-day tours up and down the NSW North coast. This amazing team did it again and exceeded their previous goal by raising over $1.1 million.
2019 saw the biggest team yet with over 145 riders and 50 support crew taking on a 3-day ride on the NSW South coast and raising $1.3 million for vital cancer research, support and prevention projects.
