4 September 2017

Powercor has announced the Leila Rose Foundation as their 2017 Powercor Tour de Depot Warrnambool charity partner.

Powercor General Manager Corporate Affairs Melissa O’Neill said the company was pleased to be partnering with a charity that makes such an important difference in the lives of local families. “We can’t wait to bring the Tour de Depot back to Warrnambool and knowing that one hundred per cent of the funds we raise will go to a charity that is dedicated to assisting families affected by rare childhood cancer makes it that much more important to us.

“We hope everyone comes along to support the amazing work the Leila Rose Foundation does and to enjoy a fun day out in celebration of the local community, “she said.

The Leila Rose Foundation provides assistance, support, and guidance to families affected by rare childhood cancer. Founding Director, Dr Andrew Chow said the Foundation is grateful to have been selected as the Powercor Tour de Depot 2017 partner.

“Being the Powercor Tour de Depot partner provides an outstanding opportunity for us to expand our support to more families in Victoria.

“Importantly, with the additional support from Powercor Tour de Depot, we can expand our tier 2 funding which has been limited to $30,000 per annum due to financial constraints.

“This funding is used to support molecular screening currently and may also be used for overseas treatment options when families have exhausted all options in Australia”, he said.

The Tour de Depot will be held in Warrnambool on Sunday 15 October 2017, For more information visit www.tourdedepot.com
