Bright Brewery is delighted to announce its return as the naming rights sponsor of the Alfred 6 Hour charity mountain bike race in 2017.
Last year over 150 riders competed in the 6 hour and 3 hours events, collectively covering more than 4620 kilometres on their mountain bikes, and helping to raise over $15,000 for the Alfred Hospital.
“It’s a great pleasure for Bright Brewery to be able to support this fantastic community event,” said Bright Brewery Marketing Manager James Davidson.
“The Alfred 6 Hour celebrates Bright Brewery’s core values of living an active life as well as coming together in support of our community.”
Bright Brewery’s founder and owner, Scott Brandon, noted the ideal timing of the event for all cycling enthusiasts.
“Coming out of winter, and on the first weekend of the school holidays, the Alfred 6 Hour is perfectly timed to get everyone warmed up for another awesome cycling season in the High Country,” said Mr Brandon.”
“Bright is a superb cycling destination, we love to ride, and we love to support local cycling events which are crucial to the ongoing economic development of Bright as a town.”
“And not only does this event encourage everyone to jump on their bike for a day of mountain bike racing fun, it also contributes an important injection of funds to the life-saving work of the Alfred Hospital.”
The Alfred 6 Hour is a charity Mountain Bike Race raising funds in support of Emergency and Trauma care at the Alfred Hospital. The event was first run in 2013, with Bright Brewery joining as the major sponsor for the first time last year.
The target for this year’s Alfred 6 Hour is $15,000. With your support, these funds will be used to purchase a cardiac monitor for the Alfred’s expanded trauma service, a purpose built facility dedicated to the early recovery of trauma patients.
The 2017 Alfred 6 Hour race is on Saturday 23rd September in Bright, followed by presentations at Bright Brewery.
We hope you can join Bright Brewery’s team in September to ride for glory, earn your beer, and make a great contribution to the important work of The Alfred Hospital.
