Hello world, :)
Last year was such a big success! We made our fund raising targets and the race was incredible - a really beautiful day all round. We also finished the race faster than we thought we would so thank you for all your support.
This year I'm riding for the Children's Hospital Trust again - this is the charity that will receive your donation. Please go to their website to read more about what they do. Their big project at the moment is raising money for a new ICU unit at the Red Cross Children's hospital in Rondebosch. You can read more about the project on their website.
My fund raising target is R3000 this year. Once I've hit that we'll set an even higher target.
Please donate an amount that you feel is right for you. To donate, click on the yellow button on the right hand side of the page (next to the thermometer). You can donate by credit card or EFT.
Thank you and if you're also riding this year, I'll see you at the finish!
The Children's Hospital Trust
The Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital is the only specialist hospital dedicated entirely to children in southern Africa and manages 260 000 patient visits annually. Very sick children are referred to this world-renowned tertiary institution from all over South Africa and the African continent.
Since 1994, the Children’s Hospital Trust, the Fundraising Arm of the Hospital has helpd raise funds for building upgrades, new equipment and skills development programmes. As the Hospital was built in 1956 the outdated facilities were in critical need of upgrading. Despite this the Hospital is world-renowned as a centre of excellence in paediatric health-care and research.
100% of donations received by the Trust go directly to the Hospital, not a single cent is spent on administration costs.
