M.S. Sydney to the Gong Ride

3rd November 2013 - MS Sydney to the Gong Bike Ride

Director of Century 21 Synergy Angelo Lofitis is passionate about properties. If there was ever a cause he was more passionate about is his community work and charitable contributions. His wife Megan has MS (Multiple Sclerosis). Having witnessed the way MS affects day to day life, Angelo has been inspired to raise vital funds for the 23,000 Australian living with this disease.

Every year MS Society Australia runs one of the largest and most respected community cycling event in Australia. The cycling event named M.S. Sydney to the Gong Ride has been running successfully for 32 years.

Angelo Lofitis founded cycling team Top Raisers with six other friends. Six years on, Lofitis recounts: “In our first year, we only hope to raise $5000, but instead we raised 17k. That was when we decided to call our team Top Raisers”.    

Top Raisers started with the generous support of sponsors such as Water Brothers Plumbing Services, Colin Butchers (sponsored meat tray prizes and meat for the bbq on the day post bike event) and Mortgage Choice - Sutherland. As years passed by, the team grew and sponsors did too.

In 2012 - Sylvania BMW came on as partner sponsors with team naming rights. They have also been most supportive by donating the first and second prizes to team members that finished the bike ride.

In 2013 Rothsay Accounting Services, AME Civil (Adam O’Malley, M: 0405 133 104) and Century 21 Synergy, Strawberry Fields Patisserie (who generously provided food and cake for all the cyclists) came on as a major sponsor for the first time.

In particular, Century 21 Synergy has agreed to donate 5% of profit to MS Australia on every property sold up to November 2013.

Other sponsors include Ashfield Cycle and Location Shots Photography. Ashfield Cycle contributed by helping the gong ride each year with bike service at the lunch spot at the National Park. Meanwhile Location Shots Photography contributed time and talent capturing the excitement of day, and documented many team photos.

Thank you to all honorable sponsors and team members involved for making this day such a huge success and donating so open heartedly.
