We'd like to start off by saying a big THANK YOU to every team and rider who has been part of the Below the Belt Pedalthon since 2014. Your continous support is what keeps us pedalling on!
We are thrilled to announce that the 2016 ride welcomed 49 teams, over 300 riders and raised over $300,000.
An extra big thank you to each and everyone of the riders, sponsors and donors for your amazing achievement.
100% of the money you have raised will go to the Below the Belt Research Fund which will enable ANZUP to improve treatments and outcomes for testicular, prostate, bladder and kidney cancers.
And there is more....we have confirmed the 2017 Pedalthon for Tuesday 19 September, so please save the date.

ANZUP Cancer Trials Group Ltd
ANZUP performs non-industry-sponsored clinical trials in genitourinary tract cancers (prostate, kidney, bladder, testis). These cancers are common and you or someone you love have probably been touched by one of them. Better treatments are needed but resources to support these trials are scarce. Your donation, large or small, will go directly to support trials to improve outcomes for people with these cancers.
