We are thrilled to announce that Pioneer Credit has once again joined the SFSuper Series as a sponsor. This year they return with exclusive naming rights for this year’s SFSuper Series.
From March, under a 12-month agreement, the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation’s flagship event will be known as the SFSuper Series supported by Pioneer Credit.
The SFSuper Series will be bigger and better in 2018 and aims to raise $500,000 to support research for the vital work of the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation. This year, the Series combines five super events including a run, cycle, cross fit challenge, family fun run and a swim.
“We are extremely proud to be supporting the vital work of the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation and see our name aligned with the flagship event, the SFSuper Series,” said Pioneer Credit Managing Director, Keith John.
This is a hugely beneficial partnership for the SFSuper Series and the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation, according to the SFSuper Series Relationship Manager, Jo Bilous.
“We are excited to have Pioneer Credit on board as our naming sponsor. Working together and moving into our fourth year, the 2018 campaign promises to be bigger, more engaging and even more rewarding for participants and sponsors alike.”
The SFSuper Series has been a great success for the Foundation, raising $650,000 to date.
“Our goal in 2018 is to take that total to close to $1 million and have at least 450 participants run, cycle, walk, swim and sweat it out all in the name of eradicating Sanfilippo,” said Executive Director of the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation, Megan Donnell.
Sanfilippo Syndrome is a rare genetic condition that causes fatal brain damage in children. It’s referred to as a childhood disease as most patients never reach adulthood. Life expectancy for children with Sanfilippo is typically just 12-20 years.
The Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation was established by Sydney mother Megan Donnell in 2013 following the shock diagnosis of both her beautiful children with Sanfilippo.
Born seemingly healthy, over time the brain gets progressively damaged. Children experience hyperactivity, sleeplessness, dementia, loss of speech and cognitive skills, mental retardation, cardiac issues, seizures, loss of mobility and finally death.
The SFSuper Series supported by Pioneer Credit will host five events this year including: Pub2Pub as part of Big Feet and Little Feet family fun run on 26th August, the Surf Coast Century ultra marathon on 15th September, the Gears and Beers Cycling Festival on 30th September, a 24hour CrossFit challenge Endure24 on 26-27th October, and the Coogee Island Challenge swim event on 25th November.
