Very Special Kids Autumn Classic

ARA Property Services - Very Special Kids Autumn Classic

When: 18 May 2018

Donated: $136,000

The brainchild of our CEO Paul McCann and Andrew Macmillan, the Very Special Kids Autumn Classic is a virtual cycling race aimed at raising funds for the charity. The event is a virtual cycling race with eight teams onsite participating on their own bikes on an indoor trainer. The riders all compete against each other via software.

Pauls’ team, ‘The Spiders’, took part in the virtual cycling race with all funds raised going to the charity. VSK supports families throughout their experience of caring for children with life-threatening conditions, from diagnosis through to recovery or bereavement.
