Personal message


"Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu"

Perhaps like "Ubuntu" it's become an African cliche'; which is no slight on the wisdom contained therein. Much of what we do in life in some or other manner effects others - for better or for worse. There can be few things as pleasant as doing something one finds personally stimulating and challenging and yet through which one is able to add some measure of value or opportunity to others; who simply by circumstance find themselves in a less fortunate situation. 

Please support me in raising funds for the FC Scholarship Fund 2011; the aim is to go beyond the 5 Mariazell High School Scholarships awarded in 2010. Your donation confirms the magnitude of a small gesture, one that has the potential to positively change a young persons life forever; truly a 'gift for life'.

Freedom Challenge Scholarship Fund

Freedom Challenge Scholarship Fund Logo

Over the last number of years participants in the events arranged by the Freedom Challenge have expressed an interest in giving back something to the people along the route. After much consideration we have decided that a good starting point would be to establish an educational fund to benefit the scholars living along the Mehloding section of the trail. This section falls within the area formerly known as the Transkei and has been identified in various social development studies as one of the poorest parts of the South Africa.

The Fund offers a 3 year scholarships for promising students to attend the private school located at the Mariazell Mission just below the Malekhalonyane Chalets which is one of our support stations used for the Ride Across South Africa and Ride to Rhodes events.

We are now challenging the 2014 FC participants to let their mountain biking passion benefit the local communities that span the Freedom Trail. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute directly to uplift the knowledge and lives of individuals and communities through education.

The Fund is run under the auspices of The Freedom Challenge’s annual, extreme and unsupported, mountain bike race extending from Pietermaritzburg to Cape Town This is a project of the Freedom Trail Foundation.
