After a long few months of lockdowns and pandemic restrictions, we are opening up with a cycling challenge for homeless youth! We are getting back into the city for Pedal for PIF.
On the 24th of November, Wynyard Park will become the location of a stationary bike (socially distanced of course) cycling frenzy. Teammates, colleagues, clients, and peers will be given a 30-minute window to power ride and clock up as many kms physically possible!
Pedal for PIF is a true test of endurance, to see how much the body can take when cycling for a cause greater than fitness.
The funds raised in the lead-up and on the day go towards our PIF House program, which helps build homes for Australia’s homeless youth. A few weeks of fundraising and a 30-minute all-out cycle may not seem like much but helps make a tangible difference in helping homeless youth through helping fund build projects like a 4-bedroom house in Granville for young people who will be enrolled in university or TAFE while they live there. Without this kind of support – a stable home with wrap-around support – these young people would simply not have the opportunity to commit to long-term study.
These amazing industry events for homeless youth wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of our industry partners.
Thank you to our event sponsors
The GPT Group for being our major sponsor and a continued partner in helping us create these cycling challenges.
Brookfield Properties for always playing a supporting role for homeless youth either through sponsorship or getting teams of dedicated fitness enthusiasts to take part.
Multiplex for sponsoring and being strong industry supporters through competition and always incredible fundraising.
Northrop is proud to partner with the Property Industry Foundation to support the new Pedal for PIF, a day pedalling on stationary bikes to help raise funds for homeless youth.
Last year when COVID-19 cancelled the Tour for PIF, Northrop took the initiative to create a Northrop Pedal for PIF fundraiser that involved the keenest cyclists ride in Ku-ring-gai national park. The event raised over $2,250 in support of PIF, which was then matched by Northrop.
A multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy that works within the construction and property industry, Northrop supports the foundation in helping tackle this important issue within our community as it speaks directly to Northrop’s values-based culture of realising potential.
This year the Northrop team are ready to take part and they are:
- Jamie Shelton, Principal and CEO
- Stephen Fryer, Principal, Parramatta Office Leader and Civil Engineer
- Stephen Maher, Principal, Business Development Manager and Structural Engineer
- Alena Harvey, Structural Engineer
- Braeden Perrott, Structural Engineer
- Bruno Homero, Mechanical Engineer
- Pip Easling, Structural Engineer
- Ryan McShane, Graduate Sustainability Consultant
Good luck to all those participating in Wynyard Park Sydney, pedalling together for a worthy cause in building homes and keeping our youth safe.
With just under 3 weeks till the big ride, it is prime time to build up fundraising totals in support of all those that have registered to pedal for homeless youth. We still have a few remaining spots for the 9 – 9:30 am and 2 – 2:30 pm window of riding on the day so whether you would like to show your support with a donation or sign up, the Pedal for PIF has something for you.
