Having raised over $37 million for children’s charities to date, this year’s Chain Reaction cycling challenges are due to commence this month, with several consultants featuring among the teams.

A number of senior consulting leaders are gearing up for this year’s Sydney Chain Reaction cycling challenge, which kicks off in New Zealand’s South Island in less than a month.

The Melbourne and Brisbane challenges will be held in March.

Now pushing towards 40 completed rides, Chain Reaction has since its inception raised more than $37 million on behalf of its children’s charity partners.

Among this year’s participants for the Sydney challenge, which will start in Christchurch and wend its way east and south through spectacular mountain scenery to Queenstown, are FTI Consulting senior managing directors Joseph Hansell and Ben Shrimpton – with the firm returning as a major team sponsor.
