Mercer SuperCycle has been dedicated to supporting regional cancer patients by keeping families together under one roof for 10 years. We've achieved this by cycling to raise funds for The Hospital Research Foundation Group's Under Our Roof project. The funds we've raised have built family-style accommodation for country cancer patients and their families near Adelaide's major cancer treating hospitals. The final ride took place in 2021.
The Mercer SuperCycle event was a five star fully supported multi-day and multi-distance charity cycling tour through regional South Australia raising vital funds to support country cancer patients and their families. In total, Mercer SuperCycle ran for 10 editions over a decade and raised a total of $2.8 million to support regional cancer patients.

The fact I could have my sister stay and support me meant the world to me, as well as having my partner come visit on weekends. The home was a Godsend and we couldn’t have asked for better.
