HNF Bike Ride Entry wins ‘The Giver: Industry Heart Award’ at Direct Selling Australia’s Industry Awards 2020
Herbalife Nutrition won the prestigious Industry Heart Award presented by Direct Selling Australia (DSA) for the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF) Bike Ride as an innovative and committed fundraising campaign.
This award recognises the fantastic efforts of Herbalife Nutrition Independent Members who organise the HNF Bike Ride each year, a gruelling 840-kilometre pedal powered journey from Torquay to Adelaide.
We congratulate all Members who have been involved in the event – as organiser, participant or supporter –
who have helped raise over AUD$524,000 for Herbalife Nutrition Foundation in the 7 seven years since its inception. HNF funding enables our 6 Casa Herbalife Program partner charities in Australia and New Zealand to provide nutrition education and support to children and youth in need.
Peter Hurley, General Manager, Herbalife Nutrition Australia and New Zealand, said that the company is immensely proud to be recognised for their philanthropic work in THE GIVER: Industry Heart Award.
“We pride ourselves on helping people live healthier lives every day, which is why we support Casa Herbalife Nutrition Programs around Australia and New Zealand,” said Mr Hurley. Grant funding is made possible due to our Independent Members’ fundraising efforts, spearheaded each year by the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation Bike Ride. It is incredibly humbling for the event to be recognised by the Direct Selling Association, for the commitment of Herbalife Nutrition members and the positive impact Herbalife Nutrition Foundation funding has on our community,” he said.
Direct Selling Australia, the country’s leading representative body for retail selling, designed the awards to identify and celebrate innovation within the industry and recognise the efforts that member companies, including Herbalife Nutrition, have implemented throughout the year. “On behalf of DSA,
I would like to congratulate long-standing Member, Herbalife Nutrition for their outstanding achievement”, said Gill Stapleton CEO of DSA.
As a great surprise, DSA adopted a Koala from the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie on behalf of Herbalife Nutrition as our award, and presented us with an Adoption Plaque and plush koala toy. ‘Lismore Rose’ is our adopted Koala’s name, which is now also the name of our new koala office mascot!
