What our riders had to say about our commitment and going the extra mile...
Leave A Comment
We have always made it our responsibility to give back to the rural community where most of our rides take place.
We must have handed out thousands of soccer balls in the last 14 years. We believe we can change the world with a soccer ball. We also collect and hand out school books and pens to remote schools as well as clothes and food. We have raised in excess of R8m for the Quad Para Association of South Africa.
Our Christmas ride in the Balfour area is an emotional one. We collect food, clothing and necessary items for the Sunfield Home which is home to about 110 disabled adults and children. This yearly event is high on their social calendar and they spend weeks practising their Christmas Carols which they very proudly sing for us. There aren’t many dry eyes in the crowds.
What we spend your donation money on
A special thank you to all our clients who gave cash donations in December 2020. We collected R46 400 which has been handed over to the Sunfields Home. Previously we collected R17 000 and bought mattresses and seedlings for the Home.
