Meet Dario: Riding for CBHS Group in Can4Cancer

CBHS Corporate Health Fund CEO and Executive Director, Dario Molina

CBHS Corporate Health Fund CEO and Executive Director, Dario Molina, is representing CBHS Group to take on the challenge of the 400km+ Can4Cancer 3-day ride.

Dario will join more than 150 riders of all abilities on a return trip from Sydney via Bowral and Kiama, to raise vital funds for cancer cures. Along the way, the team will visit local primary schools to spread the message of cancer prevention.

For Dario, finding a cure for cancer is a mission that’s very close to home.

“My mother passed away when I was three years of age. My aunt took on board the role of my mother and dedicated her life to my siblings and me. Three years ago, I lost my dear aunt to brain cancer.

Seeing such a strong lady debilitated by such a horrific disease was emotionally excruciating for us.

I’m riding in her memory and to help find a cure so that others do not suffer as she did,” says Dario of his decision to ride this year.

Dario has a good baseline when it comes to training, as he enjoys cycling as a hobby. However, he acknowledges that some of the gruelling hills in the NSW South Coast area will be a challenge compared to his usual flat cycling routes! 

We wish Dario luck as he begins to ramp up his training schedule. Follow his journey and meet more of our Can4Cancer participants on CBHS Health Facebook.

What is Can4Cancer all about?

Can4Cancer is CommBank’s community initiative with Tour de Cure that raises vital funds for cancer research and support for people with cancer. CBHS Group is the exclusive Wellbeing Partner for Can4Cancer in 2019.

In September and October, we’ll be supporting the ride as well as 3,000+ CommBank staff to complete 21km walks across six capital cities. Alongside Dario, we hope to have a great turnout of CBHS staff walking and fundraising in the events too!

CBHS is also aiming to raise $25,000 towards life-changing research into breast, brain, pancreatic and prostate cancer. You can donate towards our efforts here.
