Charities Supported by Zinc

Tour de Cure -

Zinc is a proud supporter of cancer research and support projects via the Tour de Cure.

Tour de Cure annually selects and funds cancer projects in the following areas:

- Research projects focused to help find a cure
- Support projects for those suffering with the journey of cancer
- Prevention projects that are focused on education and awareness of communities

Over the past nine years Tour de Cure has funded 89 Research, Support and Prevention Projects for men, women and children totalling over $20 million. You may have seen this charity ride on Channel 7's Sunrise show where their sports commentator, Mark Beretta does live crosses from the Tour.

In March/April 2014 the cyclists rode the "signature tour" from Sydney to Hobart via the Snowy Mountains, a total of 1,650km. Of the 60 or so cyclists, 2 were from Port Douglas and one of these, Marco, is an owner of Zinc. Zinc and many other local businesses and residents supported their fundraising efforts with a gala dinner & action night at the restaurant.

Zinc will continue to support this worthy cause via future Tours indefinitely.
