In September 2016, the Great Southern Crossing will be back for its second edition. The Great Southern Crossing is a new, innovative kind of event. Starting 1st September, cyclists from all around Australia will be able to virtually cross the country by cycling in their own neighbourhoods, bikeways, and open roads. Thanks to the integration between mobile applications Strava/MapMyFitness and everydayhero, every kilometre cycled in real life will be added to the virtual path from Brisbane to Perth, leading to one of the greatest virtual races ever seen! And while they train and cycle, they will be actively fundraising for their favourite cause as for every 5 dollars donated, 1km will be added to the team logs. Virtual events are the perfect opportunity to leverage your fundraisers and donors all over the country and provide them with a great opportunity to have fun and challenge themselves while helping your cause. With only 9 weeks to go before the event, it’s time to start recruiting your teams and team captains! Over the coming weeks, we will be giving you tips and tricks to help you make your fundraising campaign a successful one, so don’t forget to come back and check out the blog regularly!
