Buderim 9 Challenge & Argon Law
We are a fortunate and unique community in our ability to live, work, educate and play together.
And that's exactly what Sunshine Coast law firm, Argon Law is doing when it comes to its involvement in the iconic Buderim 9 Challenge!
The Sunshine Coast’s toughest hill cycle ride, the Buderim 9 Challenge, is an annual charity fundraising event which takes place on the Sunday immediately before Christmas, with enormous success. The objective for cyclists is to climb as many of the nine, very steep hills around Buderim mountain as you can in three hours, starting at 5 am and finishing at 8 am. The objective of the whole event is to raise funds for the Cerebral Palsy League.
In 2017, Argon Law celebrated their five-year association with the Buderim 9 Challenge by renewing their relationship for another five years.
“Argon Law is honoured to continue working with the Buderim 9 organisers and CPL to help raise awareness of the daily challenge faced by people living with cerebral palsy,” Director of Argon Law, John Gallagher said.
“In addition, funds raised by the ride go directly to children and families on the Sunshine Coast living with cerebral palsy providing useful equipment and meaningful experiences, such as iPads, safety aids and family days out.
“Argon Law is committed to giving back to the communities it serves on the Sunshine Coast, and we believe the expression “good corporate citizenship” must be tangible, meaningful and collaborative – and that’s exactly what the Buderim 9 Challenge is all about.
“The Buderim 9 Challenge is a fabulous example of individuals within our community and local businesses coming together for a common cause, a bit of fun and personal challenge.”
Recent years have seen up to 250 riders, more than 20 sponsors and supporters, many amazing donations of goods, time, sweat and money, with gross proceeds exceeding $40,000 and net proceeds exceeding $24,000 per annum!
The funds raised are distributed throughout the year to children and families on the Sunshine Coast living with Cerebral Palsy. We take this opportunity to extend our warmest thanks for the efforts of all those who have helped to make this event such an extraordinary success.
At the 2016 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards, the Buderim 9 Challenge Organising Committee was recognised for its efforts and nominted in the Community Group of the Year category.
