Slattery were proud to sponsor the second ever Tour de PIF Brisbane. This year, 125 riders participated to support youth homelessness and raised over $35,000. This will go directly into building Queensland’s first PIF House. The PIF House project will be the refurbishment of the existing 3-bedroom house on the property, as well as the construction of 3 x 1 bedroom apartments and 3 x 2 bedroom apartments – a total of 12 more bedrooms to add to the housing opportunities currently on offer for homeless young people. This facility will become a home and safe place to young people currently experiencing homelessness in Brisbane.
Starting and finishing at the Sirromet Winery, riders of both the 56km and 72 km challenges were treated to magnificent views of the picturesque Mt Cotton region and surrounds, as well as terrific on-course support with moto scouts, mobile mechanics, first aid vehicles and sweep cars supporting them throughout the ride.
The 72km course featured a Team, King and Queen of the Mountain challenge – where riders sought to attain the fastest time up the timed-climb section of the Mountain.
Slattery’s team comprised of Executive Chairman Josh Slattery, Director Mark Pickerill, Associate Josh Coxen, as well as staff members David Kelly, David Zacharie and Matthew Petchel, taking out the 2018 ‘Team of the Mountain Line’ honor.
We are thrilled to announce that David Kelly, from our Melbourne office, won the prestigious King of the Mountain award.
Congratulations to Louise Gunston from Mirvac – 2018 Queen of the Mountain, and to all the other participants.
We would like to commend PIF for their incredible efforts coordinating the event, which included engaging speakers, added auctions and excellent networking opportunities, all the while supporting youth homelessness. Slattery are passionate about contributing to solutions for this cause and we look forward to future events.
