Zwift vEveresting Challenge

Zwift vEveresting Challenge

Personal message

I am an avid cyclist who would like to make the most of this lockdown in South Africa by taking on a challenge like no other.

On Sunday the 19th of April 2020 at 3h30am I will be attempting a virtual everesting (vEveresting) challenge on a cycling platform called Zwift. This challenge will involve cycling one hill on the Zwift platform, called the Alpe du Zwift, repetitively, until reaching the elevation of Mount Everest, which is 8 848m to be exact.

This ride will be done in one single activity and will work out to roughly 230kms. I will aim to complete this challenge in under 15 hours.

In taking on this massive challenge, I hope to raise funds that will go towards the Gift of the Givers Foundation who will use all proceeds to buy equipment and supplies for medical facilities in South Africa. Such as:

  • Manual and automated ventilation equipment.
  • Intubation equipment.
  • Safety equipment for medical staff and medical supplies

All these goods will go to doctors, nurses and other medical staff in facilities across SA dealing with the virus.

All donations are much appreciated.
