Westpac Tour de Cure 8 - 10 March 2020

DXC are delighted to be participating in the Westpac Tour de Cure for the second year. This is a fantastic initiative to raise funds for cancer research, and we are proud to be supporting this great cause again after raising over $15,000 in 2019. This year, the Westpac Tour de Cure, 8-10 March 2020 will see cyclists and support crew travel from Bathurst to the scenic Central Tablelands to the Blue Mountains and finally back to Sydney. We have two riders representing DXC: Alex Ratkovsky (Banking and Capital Markets Industry Director, DXC Australia) and Alfred Flokstra (Client Partner, Banking and Capital Markets Industry, DXC Australia).

Our DXC riders, each have a goal to raise over $3,000! In true DXC spirit let's get behind our riders and support them in their amazing effort for this great cause.

Please visit the official Westpac Tour de Cure website here, and visit their individual fundraising pages below.

Alex Ratkovsky

I have a personal experience in my family that deeply impacted me and compelled me to support and participate in fundraising for cancer research. From the early days of college to grad school and beyond I witnessed the progress in treatment options, however during the same period, I also realised that only a few small advancements were made to eliminate and eradicate while people close to me were impacted. It is truly heartbreaking to realise the angst that people go through and I will use every opportunity to contribute in raising funds to treatment and research to absolutely minimize the number of lives impacted.

I look forward to keeping you up to date with my training progress and I encourage you to donate to this great cause.

Alfred Flokstra

The Westpac the Tour de Cure has been a recurring event that raises much needed funds for cancer research. My family and many friends around us have been affected by cancer, and the impact this has on everybody is devastating, disruptive, both physically and mentally. The pain we witness, the anger and desperation are heart breaking. What do you say when you are doing an evening walk with a friend who has to tell his 13 year old son that he is dying? How do you comfort a mother who has buried her 14-year-old daughter?

There are only a few things we as a family can do, we rally behind the families and friends and provide support and help them where we can with simple things like cooking dinner, walking the dog, cleaning the house or driving siblings to training or friends to hospital and back. And we can raise funds, so the fantastic researchers get closer to finding cures for cancer. So, please get behind Alex and I and help us reach our goals of raising $6,200 ($3,100 each).

Riding this year will hopefully have an additional, personal, benefit: getting fitter. I had to buy a bike, got the lycra sorted and now getting training rides done. The 300+ km ride From Bathurst, through the Blue Mountains into Barangaroo will mark a personal achievement I am committed to completing before I hit 50 in April. Your donation is much appreciated and for a great cause.
