Caroline’s ‘BUCHANAN NEXTGEN’ scholarship and mentoring program receives new official sponsor, increases financial support and opens applications.
Rubik3, leader of strategic business solutions based in Canberra, has signed a 3-year contract to support Caroline Buchanans’ scholarship and mentoring program beginning in 2019.
"The brands alignment with my values of supporting the next generation of BMX girls, providing a pathway and mentoring their progression goes hand in hand with Rubik3's focus on relationships with their clients, allowing them to produce exceptional results and having a positive impact in their hometown - which is also my hometown - Canberra."
"Together we are stronger, and I look forward to continuing to provide exceptional results and an impact on the future of the next generation," says Caroline Buchanan.
"For 2019, Rubik continues their focus on supporting community sport. We are focusing on promoting women in sport with the message – ‘Girls Can Too!’"
"We have always loved following Caroline’s career and achievements in her sport and proud to be in partnership with such a strong, driven young woman who is committed to making a change to younger girls in sport. We can’t wait to support the next generation of BMX girls."
"We are excited about the next three years!" says Rubik3 Branding Director, Nadia Pessarossi.
ABOUT THE BUCHANAN NEXTGEN RUBIK3 SCHOLARSHIP
In 2014 Caroline first launched the 'Buchanan NextGen' scholarship and mentoring program in an effort to better support the progression of BMX and future of women in the sport, by giving them the opportunity to excel on the world stage.
With success of the program to date, Caroline is excited to announce that the scholarship will continue in 2019 with sponsorship and increased financial support from Canberra's leader of strategic business solutions, Rubik3.
"It inspires me daily to stay true and strive to continue to be a a bit of a modern-day superhero rebel who does things differently, breaks the mould and helps the future of women's cycling, women's sport and women's empowerment in general,"
"There has been a huge shift in support for women in sport. With sanctions and organisers of events providing equal pay and social media especially being the main stream of news and information on positive role model's success, the pathways for women to be highly respected - and paid - badass role models is becoming the new norm," says Caroline.
This year Caroline, along with Rubik3, will award 2 x young Aussie riders $5,000 each in scholarship money to assist them to travel to the BMX World Championships in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium from July 23 to July 28 2019.
To be successful, applicants must be a female competing in either the 20-inch 14-years or 15-years ago group at the 2019 BMX Australian National Championships. Applicants must send an application to Buchanan NextGen and intend on riding at this year's BMX World Championships.
