IAG team puts purpose into pedalling for Lifeline

Categories: Community, Counselling, Fundraising

SONY DSCInsurance giant IAG sees its role as much more than policies, premiums and paying out claims, which is why – as a corporate partner of Lifeline Australia – it is rallying staff to ride the Bobbin Head Cycle Classic.

Cycling enthusiast, Lee Heycox (pictured right), who is also the company’s executive general manager of People and Culture, says IAG is committed to building safer, stronger and more confident communities by fostering resilience in the workplace and beyond.

So its fundraising arm, the IAG Foundation, has set a generous goal to help staff raise funds for Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury by pledging to match every dollar raised by staff who cycle one of the four tracks in “the Bobbo” cycle classic on March 26.

“In partnering with Lifeline, we believe there is scope for an effective synergy between IAG’s commitment to resilient communities and empathic communication with clients, and Lifeline’s expertise in telephone crisis support and suicide prevention,” Lee said.

All power to the IAG Bobbo team, one among several corporate teams pedalling for Lifeline and other local charities supporting communities in need.
