Cycling the 9PAW7

Personal message

We are two enthusiastic athletes who have chosen to raise awareness and fundraise for a local non-profit organisation (NPO) by completing the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge (18 November 2018) for The Society for Animals in Distress.

The Society for Animals in Distress is the single largest professional welfare veterinary care provider in South Africa, annually providing 100 000 treatments to domestic animals from indigent communities. Established in 1958, we are built on a foundation of solution driven, focused animal care education. Our operational methods are geared towards sustainability, which is illustrated by our commitment to skills development, youth upliftment, increasing the scope for graduates in para-veterinary disciplines, social, economic and enterprise development and business incubation.

Our fundraising effort is aimed at relieving the pressure that this Society feels financially by raising a target of R5,000.00.

The team that will participate in the Cycle Challenge will be Samantha Mullins and Bruce Richardson.

We appeal to anyone interested to donate to our initiative and help us to reach this target. 

The following information is available to you to explore:

  1. The Society for Animals in Distress website:

The NPO is aware of the initiative. Should you wish to donate from a company, we can enquire about the NPO issuing a tax certificate – kindly contact me in this regard to arrange accordingly.


To sweeten the deal, we have some AMAZING prizes to giveaway!! For every R100 donated, you get one entry into the draw. The prizes consist of:

- A couple's photoshoot with Jag Photography
- 3 x training sessions at Body20 Riverside
- 1 x 8 hour home cleaning from SweepSouth
