Is there parking at the event?

Yes, there is ample free parking onsite.

Fundraising

Where does the money go?

Every cent we raise through Below the Belt events and our supporters' kind donations goes directly towards clinical trial research via the Below the Belt Research Fund. 

Since 2015, Below the Belt has raised over $1.95 million for cancer research.

All of the major milestones in controlling cancer worldwide have come through clinical trials, but we still have a long way to go to help every person affected, at risk or diagnosed with this disease.

Our Below the Belt Research Fund has helped our clinicians kick start new trial ideas. To date, seed funding has been awarded to 32 ANZUP members to help gather the evidence needed to develop full scale clinical research studies.

Do I have to fundraise?

As all of the money raised through donations goes straight into ANZUP's Below the Belt Research Fund, we would LOVE for you to fundraise as much as you can.

The minimum amount each rider should fundraise is $500, but we know you can do better than that.

Will I receive a tax invoice?

Yes, every donation over $2 is tax deductible.

Can I set my fundraising goal higher?

If you smash your fundraising goal - great work! You can update your fundraising target by logging in to your fundraiser page.

Then, click your name in the top right-hand corner, then select Edit My Page from the drop-down menu.

Also on this page you can edit your page's URL, create a blog post and add an image to your gallery.

How do I thank someone who has donated to me?

When you receive a donation, you will receive an email letting you know. We encourage you to thank your Donors for their support. You can do this via your profile.

This video shows how to thank a donor that has donated to you.
