Could you go the distance?

This weekend, 20 cyclists will attempt to cover 500km in jus 24 hours - all for a chance to raise R 1 Million that will go towards supporting PATCH / Helderberg Child Abuse Centre.

PATCH provides child survivors of sexual abuse with 24 hr. crisis intervention, freeprofessional therapy, court preparation, as well as providing prevention and awareness programmes in surrounding schools within the Helderberg area of Cape Town.

Here's what happened at last year's event:

During the same 24 hours, a spinning bike marathon will be held at the NH The Lord Charles Hotel. Companies are invited to book one or more spinning bikes for this unique team building opportunity! All cyclists and spinners will be encouraged to raise sponsorships to help the fundraising efforts of the event.
