Marshall White joins Chain Reaction

07 May 2024

Marshall White colleagues are back in the saddle, partnering with Chain Reaction to support sick children and their families. The annual corporate cycling event inspires individuals and businesses to unite and make a difference in the lives of those facing the toughest of challenges. 

This year, two deserving Melbourne-based charities, Monash Children's Hospital and the Starlight Children's Foundation, have been chosen as the beneficiaries of the fundraising efforts. Tom Hayne, a Sales Executive at Marshall White and passionate cyclist, explains the importance of these organisations. 

"Monash Children's Hospital is dedicated to providing cutting-edge technology to enhance the independence of infants and children," Hayne shares. "The funds raised will help upgrade equipment and increase staffing, ensuring the best possible care for young patients." 

He also highlights the Starlight Children's Foundation's mission to create a happy and fun environment for children during challenging times. "The Starlight Express Rooms and Captain Starlight Programs bring joy and laughter to families when they need it most," Hayne adds. 

Since 2018, Marshall White employees have raised an impressive $1 million for Chain Reaction. This year, five dedicated colleagues – Harry Bongiorno, Alan Crawford, Tom Hayne, Justin Holod, and Kaine Lanyon – are ready to take on the challenge and make a positive impact. 

Justin Holod, a Director at Marshall White and fellow cyclist, shares his motivation: "As a keen cyclist, getting involved in the Chain Reaction Challenge was a very easy decision for me. The organisation is highly regarded in the cycling community and is an excellent way to test the riders' mental and physical capabilities to raise much-needed funds for kids in need through Monash Children's Hospital and Starlight Children's Foundation, two very worthy causes.” 

The funds raised will directly support the vital work of these charities, enabling Monash Children's Hospital to provide better care and shorter wait times and allowing Starlight Children's Foundation to continue spreading joy to children and their families. 

As the Marshall White team gears up for this rewarding journey, they call upon the community to support their efforts. Every donation, big or small, will contribute to making a difference in the lives of sick children and their families.
