Nick and Catherine Cape Argus Madness!!!!

Nick and Catherine Cape Argus Madness!!!!

Personal message

1 in every 5 children in South Africa do not receive any Early Childhood Development Training. It costs R180 a month to send a child to an Early Childhood Development Facility = R2160 a year!

We have decided to buy a tandem bike and cycle the Argus in order to raise funds for 5 children to go to school.

This is really a HUGE challenge not only for Catherine, who can barely walk to the shops down the street, but ESPECIALLY for Nick who will most likely be dragging Catherine up every hill!

Please sponsor us in this crazy adventure, you will be doing your bit to

- build stronger and healthier communities

- Reduce the crime rate

- Lower Social Costs

- Contribute towards creating more productive and contributing citizens

and Economic improvement

 

p.s. I kindly request that you do not base your sponsorship on the fact that we have to actually finish the race ON TIME! We plan on finishing it, but may not be in the allocated time allowed :)

Our bike is about 102 years old (think Cool Runnings and the Jamaican Bob Sled Team) so we might have to carry it over the finish line!

Offline donations - special thanks to Mr and Mrs Pieters for their donation of R250!

Afrika Tikkun

Afrika Tikkun Logo

Afrika Tikkun empowers communities to develop new generations of productive citizens using our unique Development Model. We achieve this through purpose built 'Centres of Excellence' within the townships providing social development services from cradle to career.

Our great Patron, Nelson Mandela has this to say about our organisation:

Afrika Tikkun has proven that it has the ability to reach our disadvantaged population at a grassroots level. It provides both physical help, as well as hope and diginity to the recipients.”

The impact of the patronage of one of the world’s greatest heroes cannot be overstated and Afrika Tikkun is proud to have been counted as one of four organisations worldwide entitled to bear the Mandela name to the end.
