The second annual Chain Reaction Challenge will get under way in Australia, from Canberra to Melbourne from March 8-14, 2008. The six-day event will see 36 senior executives ride 1000km for children's charities.

The inaugural Chain Reaction Challenge was held in March 2007, where 32 executives raised $475,000 for the Starlight Children's Foundation and the Newborn Emergency Transport Service. The 2008 ride aims to raise in excess of $500,000 for the same charities.

Six corporate branded teams are in full training for this challenge and were recently joined by Tour de France rider and Herald Sun Tour winner Matt Wilson for a training camp at Mt Buller, which will be part of the 2008 itinerary.

The Chain Reaction Challenge welcomes donations to ensure that the 2008 event helps as many children as possible. If you would like to make a donation please go to the website www.chain-reaction.org.au and click on Sponsor a Rider.
