1000kms for Kids in Need!

Clipsal by Schneider Electric’s Ashley Ralph, General Manager – Partner Programs will run 1000 kilometres (100km a day for 10 days) from Melbourne to Adelaide, with the aim of raising $400,000 to be shared by the two charities.

It is a massive challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by burns victims, or children facing a life-threatening conditions every single day. By supporting Ashley on this epic run you can really help make a positive difference in many lives too.

Travelling through regional Victoria and South Australia, Ashley will engage with local communities along the way. He is running from Clipsal by Schneider in Notting Hill, Melbourne, to Geelong where he will be met with Patrick Dangerfield, across to Colac, through Port Fairy crossing into South Australia through Mount Gambier. He will then travel up via Salt Creek to Wellington, Strathalbyn and finish on the final day down the straight of the Clipsal 1000 Adelaide track on Friday 3 March.

Ashley is no stranger to a challenge. In 2014, he cycled 2,800km over 14 days from Perth to Adelaide, in 2012 he placed 3rd in the Adelaide Ultra Marathon and in 2006 he cycled 3,000kms over 21 days, raising funds for other worthy causes. He is also an eight-time Ironman triathlon finisher, four-time half ironman finished and four-time 42km Marathon finisher.

Ashley says, “The Club Clipsal 1000 challenge is my biggest physical and mental challenge yet but it is nothing compared to the challenges faced by burns survivors and children facing a life-threatening condition every single day”.

Clipsal by Schneider Electric and Club Clipsal members are committed to the Club Clipsal 1000 challenge. “It is because of their generous support that we are well on our way to raising $400K collectively for the Julian Burton Burns Trust and Variety – the Children’s Charity, ” Ashley said.
