Desert Dash for Orion

Personal message

​Pieter du Plessis, CEO of Atlantis Foundries, and Dr. Michael Grant, CTO of DataProphet have joined forces to compete in the 2020 Desert Dash across Namibia on 11th December.

These two crazies are attempting to cycle, yes cycle, 373km in less than 24 hours from Windhoek to Swakopmund in the sweltering Namibian summer heat of 40C+ !!!!!

Of course, it would be silly to do this in vain, so they would love to do this for a good cause, and are therefore asking you to consider sponsorship or a donation to support the Orion Organisation NPC in honour of this feat.

The boys have been training literally day and night over the last 6 months to prepare for this mammoth race, so please let it not all be in vain, please sponsor them and help support a well-deserving charity along the way.

You can sponsor or donate, a fixed amount, an amount per km completed or and amount for every minute under 24 hours they finish under!! The choice is yours. It doesn't have to be a large amount, every little helps.

The Orion Organisation NPC work hard to create a future for thousands of disabled people by providing residential and day facilities, structured learning and development programmes, sports and recreation facilities and opportunities to encourage and develop each individual. ​For more information about this amazing organisation please visit: www.orionorganisation.org​ or watch this short video link:  https://youtu.be/69Vg0maZ5pY

Please support Pieter and Mike on their journey to help raise funds and awareness by your donation
