8848 Ride Royal National Park Foundation10 Sep 2016

On Saturday 10 September, Shaw and Partners Senior Research Analyst, Peter O’Connor, cycled the height of Mt Everest in the 8848 Ride Royal National Park after a long and exhausting 13 hour ride. 


The 8848 Royal National Park is the world’s first mass participation Everest cycling event to raise funds for Cancer Council.


For this unique 24 hour event, Base Camp at Garie Beach (NSW) has been transformed into a Himalayan mountain village offering participants unparalleled support and assistance. The 2.5 kilometre climb to the summit was a floodlit, car-free and well paved road with spectacular views and great climbing. The ride was 44 laps of the course, over 235 kilometres with an average gradient of seven per cent.


Peter raised $5,717 for the Cancer Council with each and every dollar being matched by the Shaw and Partners Foundation for a total of $11,434.


Well done Peter!
