About Bronte Harrop

Bronte Harrop had her first taste of the EB in 2005, when her mother was supporting Weeroona College Bendigo. Let's just say she was hooked. She hit the track with Catholic College Bendigo between 2009 and 2014 and is now a passionate volunteer with this event and many others across Victoria. In 2012, inspired by her aunty's fight with cancer, Bronte rode a human powered vehicle around a Bendigo velodrome non-stop for 12 hours to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Australia.

KidzFlip : 2018 Volunteers aiming to become Participants in 2019

If you walked by Corner Eight of track one at the Energy Breakthrough this year, you would have come across a policeman and a group of young adults, marshalling the infamous 'crash corner'.  These young adults were there day-and-night-and-day for this year’s Breakthrough, and the reason why is pretty special: part community service, part reconnaissance as KidzFlip prepares for a tilt at the Energy Breakthrough in 2019.
