You are invited
to take part in To The Top
(formally known as Ride To The Top).
To The Top is HopeStreet’s biggest fundraiser of the year. To The Top is based around Mount Kosciusko and promises adventure, breaking through comfort zones, having fun, meeting new people, taking in the beauty of Australia and most importantly raising money for the work of HopeStreet. All net funds raised goes to HopeStreet as they continue to bring hope, support and change to people who are experiencing homelessness and marginalisation, in the inner City of Sydney.
Formerly a long distance bike ride called Ride To The Top, this special bike riding event has taken place over the last 23 years and is now expanding. On behalf of the Ride to the Top Team and the HopeStreet team, we extend the invitation to you, to join them between 11-19 March 2017.
In 2017, the event has been reimagined, and will give participants an opportunity to ride or drive or hike around Mount Kosciuszko. We will be well looked after with rest and nourishment by the team at Bungarra Alpine Centre for our accommodation, food and celebration dinner.
