Strength in numbers

The 20th anniversary of Australia’s largest mass participation bike ride, Around the Bay in a Day (ATB) is just around the corner, and TeamMONASH™ is planning to take the event by storm.

Among the participants will be third year student Rebecca Beagley, who is currently undertaking a Law/Music double degree at Monash University’s Clayton campus.

Rebecca has entered ATB every year since starting at Monash in 2010, which raises money for The Smith Family, an Australian children’s charity.

“I had never participated in any cycling events before, but in 2010 my friend Luisa Moore – also a Monash student – suggested we have a go at the 100km Sorrento to Melbourne ride. I had so much fun that I came back and tackled the 135km ride in 2011,” Rebecca said.

This year Rebecca is back to take on the 135km ride, starting in Geelong and ending in Melbourne.

“It’s a great challenge! And it’s well organised, as you have all day to complete your event and the free TeamMONASH™ cycling jersey sets you apart from the crowd.”

TeamMONASH™ has represented Monash University at ATB every year since 2003, winning the Largest Tertiary Team title for four of the last five years that the award has been presented – losing only once to arch rival The University of Melbourne in 2007.

“In an event with thousands of participants, it’s a great feeling to ride alongside other Monash cyclists out on the road. And being cheered on by the TeamMONASH™ cheer squad when you’re cycling along the home stretch is pretty exciting,” Rebecca said.

“Completing in ATB has inspired me to take up cycling more regularly. It’s a wonderful way of keeping fit.”

The Around the Bay in a Day bike ride will be held 21 October with events starting from a range of locations throughout Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula and Geelong with all events finishing within the grounds of Alexandra Gardens, Melbourne.

Swimming isn’t the cure, but it sure helps

For the third year in a row, Monash University will be hosting a 24 hour Mega Swim, in aid of Multiple Sclerosis. This year to date, we have raised in excess of $30,000.

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system, which affects more young Australians than any other neurological condition and does not yet have a cure.

Monash University PhD Student, from the School of Biological Sciences, and coach of the Youth Squad (a team entered in the event), Melissa Klamt, said this year the team is setting their goals even higher.

“In 2012 we’re setting our fundraising target at more than $20,000 and swimming towards a target of 113km plus to break the record for the longest distance swum in a 25 metre pool,” Ms Klamt said.

Youth Squad’s 2011 efforts led the team to raise a grand total of $14,285 and swim a total distance of 108.35 km in the 24 hour event, surpassing the $7,445 and 96.4 km result from the year before.

This performance led to the team accumulating the most points for money fundraised and distance swum combined amongst all the other participating teams in 2011.

“This is a fantastic fundraising effort for such a young team, whose average age is 14 years,” Ms Klamt said.

“Money has been raised through selling chocolates, a swimming club breakfast, school fundraisers, social dinners, raffles and auctions however Youth Squad could not have raised this money without the help of the local community and businesses donating money and items”

Donations to the event can be made online.

The 2012 24 hour Mega Swim for MS will be held from 6-7 October at the newly retiled Doug Ellis Swimming Pool complete with revamped grand stand, at Monash University’s Clayton campus.

Chancellor’s Cup Golf Day

The Chancellor’s Cup Golf Day is a fundraising opportunity for Monash University affiliated sporting clubs across all campuses. The four person Ambrose format will provide the basis for a great day of golf on one of Melbourne’s most prestigious courses at the Spring Valley Golf Club. Throughout the day various competitions will be held including, longest drive and nearest the pin. And with the Baseball club winning the past two Chancellor’s Cup Golf Days, they will be sure to be going for a third, however there will be a few teams biting at their heels this year.

Although the competitive streak will come out throughout the course of the day, our fundraising efforts are the top priority. Last year over $8,500 was raised for Monash University sporting clubs. These funds went direct to helping them stay financially viable sporting clubs, providing a great outlet for Monash University students and staff members.

A light lunch will be provided on arrival, with food and beverage snacks supplied to participants during the round from a mobile refreshment cart. The event will finish with an informal gourmet BBQ, presentations to the winners and a thank you to all participants for their support.

Held on Friday 16 November, at Spring Valley Golf Club (just 5 minutes from Clayton campus), the day promises to be great day out for all keen golfers at Monash.

Please visit our website for more information.
