The total amount raised to date is R55,620 which equates to 19 bicycles which will be handed out to children to enable them to ride themselves to school instead of walking an hour or more to and from school each day.

Raising Funds For Qhubeka – A Special Thanks To An Ironman Champ

We would like to make a special mention to someone that has really gone the extra mile in support of our chosen charity Qhubeka who we are raising funds for as part of our expedition. This special somebody is Garron Mosley. Garron recently celebrated his birthday and generously asked all his family and friends to make a donation to Qhubeka in lieu of gifts. We couldn’t be more grateful for this extremely kind gesture. Garron is not only humble and generous but is also an IronMan champion.
