Announcement

The Tour de Murray Committee are committed to ensure a bigger, brighter and better event for 2017 and are thrilled to announce a new naming rights sponsor in RACV.



Jointly organized by Mallee Family Care (Chances for Children) and the Rotary Club of Mildura, the annual event has provided over $365,000 to local community organizations and charities, including Chances for Children during its 17 year history.

The Tour de Murray is a long established event on the local Mildura calendar and is a proven success, attracting many participants and community members.

The Tour de Murray Committee are committed to ensure a bigger, brighter and better event for 2017 and are thrilled to announce a new naming rights sponsor in RACV.   Chances for Children Chair, Fiona Devilee, noted that the event had been unable to secure a naming rights sponsor in 2016 so were thrilled to have secured the important relationship of the RACV.

The Committee are excited to announce further changes to the event, most notably being a change in venue.  The 2017 event will be held for the first time on the Rowing Club lawns at Mildura’s riverfront with the Murray River as a scenic backdrop. All events will be now be timed, with participants receiving ‘goodie bags’ and an event t-shirt as part of their entry fee.

For the first time, the RACV Tour de Murray event welcomes Chances inaugural ambassadors in Xavier Bench-Rizio and Stevi Robinson. Chances has provided support to Xavier to participate in football in 2016, and he is really excited to be an ambassador and to meet Matt Dea at the event.

Stevi is beginning her Diploma in Nursing this year at Sunraysia Institute of TAFE.  Chances is helping Stevi through providing a scholarship to assist her with her course fees, books and nursing equipment. 

Proceeds from the event support Rotary charities and Chances for Children to support local youth like Stevi and Xavier to fulfil their potential in education, training, and sport or musical pursuits.   Riders, runners and walkers commit to fundraising through their event participation which includes a monster auction held at the conclusion of the events.
