On Sunday the Chain Reaction Women’s peleton rolled into the Anna Mears Stadium in Brisbane, signalling an end to the three-day, 300 km ride from Byron Bay to Brisbane.

Over the course of the multi-day cycling challenge, the 48 women riders pushed themselves to their limits to overcome tough mental and physical challenges to raise a staggering $425,000 for children's charities Hummingbird House and Youth Advocacy Centre.

Our very own team captain, Mel Lourens, was awarded the black Mercedes Benz jersey for “the best display of the spirit of Chain Reaction” for her efforts during her first Chain Reaction event, driving the KordaMentha team and exceeding her individual fundraising efforts.

We would like to congratulate not only the KordaMentha team, but the entire peloton of women for completing the ride, as well as all of their family and friends who supported them over the journey.

About Chain Reaction 

Chain Reaction was founded by our Head of Real Estate, Berrick Wilson after his daughter was rushed to hospital with a brain haemorrhage when she was just two days old. Since its first ride in 2007, many of our people have participated in Chain Reaction or have donated their time and expertise to support this important initiative which has raised over $21 million to date.
