Brent's Cape Epic for Fisantekraal Development Centre

Brent's Cape Epic for Fisantekraal Development Centre

Personal message

This year I’ll be riding the Absa Cape Epic, the toughest mountain bike race in the world. It is a 691km bike ride over 8 days in the Western Cape including 15000m of vertical climbing, nearly twice the height of Mt Everest. The race twists its way through some of the most beautiful, rugged and remote landscape the Western Cape has to offer. I’ll be facing a physical challenge for 8 days from the 19th-26th March, but there are many people in South Africa who face much more real challenges every day, like getting a job, housing their families and putting food on the table. Those are truly challenges worth faciing. My partner and I will encourage and assist each other through 8 days of hard riding. This is a chance for you to partner with us to encourage and assist those who need a hand-up not a hand-out.

I’d like to use the Epic as a means to raise money for the Fisantekraal Centre for Development, an remarkable non-profit that makes a real difference in the lives of people who need a chance to be up-skilled to be more employable. They provide life skills training as well as many other courses to help people be more useful in the difficult job market. I’d like to raise at least R69 100, that's a hundred rand per kilometre. This money will go a long way to providing training opportunities for people who might otherwise not be able to get into the marketplace.

I'd like you to consider sponsoring me a R1 per kilometre completed, or if you're feeling more generous How about R10 per kilometre or even more? It's a worthwhile cause and your donation will truly make a difference in someone's life!
