Organisers of local charity event, the Whitelion Jungle Ride today announced that Port Douglas’ Hemingway’s Brewery have come on board as major sponsor for this year’s ride.

The newly formed partnership will see Hemingway’s strongly aligned with the involvement of Australian cycling legend Stuart O’Grady who was recently announced as the inaugural Whitelion Jungle Ride Ambassador.

Jungle Ride Director, Mr Julian Thomas, said that support provided by Hemingway’s would cover the cost of bringing Stuart O’Grady to Port Douglas to participate in the ride which will travel from Port Douglas to Cape Tribulation on Saturday 29 October 2016.

“We are excited to have Hemingway’s on board because while Stuart has generously undertaken his Ride Ambassador role at no cost to us, there are still costs associated with transporting and accommodating an event ambassador and so this sponsorship combined with the support of local suppliers such as Mandalay Apartments and Avis Cars ensures that these costs do not impact our vital fundraising efforts,” Mr Thomas said.

Hemingway’s General Manager, Mr Dean Scadding, said that they were delighted to be able to provide support to the event which raises much needed funds for at risk youth.

“It’s a great cause and this being the only charity ride that departs from Port Douglas means we are actively supporting our local region, which is an important factor for us.”

In addition to promoting and participating in this year’s Jungle Ride, Stuart O’Grady will also be undertaking an exclusive invitation only ‘Recovery Ride’ the day after the Jungle Ride and will be joined by the top 10 fundraisers for this year’s event. The ‘Recovery Ride’ will start and finish from outside Hemingway’s Brewery on the Sunday

“Getting an invitation to join Stuart’s ‘Recovery Ride’ the next day is a great incentive for those 10 participants in the ride who have really made an effort with their fundraising…..and I’m sure they won’t mind enjoying a brew or two at Hemingway’s at the finish,” Mr Scadding said.
