Become a Sponsor

Why you should sponsor.

The C2K Bike Ride allows for different levels of involvement and provides a wonderful opportunity to build your company’s profile in the community.  We will work hand in hand with you to be part of your organisation’s corporate social responsibility manifesto.

Sponsorship of C2K provides great opportunities for mutual benefit and offers a unique platform to promote your brand, program and services to a broad audience across Cairns and Regional Queensland.

By becoming a sponsor, your organisation will be able to demonstrate your commitment to the education of young Queensland children in the bush who would otherwise have challenges in accessing the resources that children in mainstream schools take for granted.

Through the school community, hundreds of riders, supporters and volunteers that make the ride possible each year – and fellow sponsors, your exposure is guaranteed to reach a wide audience, which is strongly encouraged to utilise our sponsors’ services.
