Community

Honda Australia supports a number of community based initiatives and charities through involvement in their various fundraising efforts.

Honda's charities of choice include the Children's Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research.

The Snowy Ride

The Snowy Ride is a motorcycle event run annually in the Alpine Region of NSW with the aim of involving motorcycle riders from all over Australia to raise money for Childhood Cancer Research.

The first Snowy Ride was launched in 2001 as a request from Steven Walter, a young man who lost his fight against cancer. Steve loved motorcycle riding and asked that a charity motorcycle ride be organised to raise funds for cancer research and cancer care, "So that one day no other kid will have to go through what I've been through".

Children's Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research

Children's Cancer InstituteThe Children's Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research (CCIA) is the only independent medical research institute in Australia dedicated
to research into the causes, cure and prevention of childhood cancer.

The CCIA vision is to be a leader in preventing cancer, to find new ways of curing cancer in children through world-class research, to ensure the best possible quality of life for these children and their families, to share the vision with others and to increase awareness, participation and funding.

CCIA was founded in May 1976 by dedicated group of parents and doctors of children with cancer.

Since the construction of our first laboratory in 1984, CCIA's research effort has grown to encompass seven major research programs. These research programs undertake basic, preclinical and clinical studies that represent a broad and well-integrated approach directed at improving the outcome of all children with cancer.
