We are thrilled that the 2012 1965Ride has raised just over R500 000 for education.
As most of you already know, our goal is to raise funds for an educational bursary trust for deserving students who wish to attend Queen’s College, Queenstown as boarders. With last year’s R300 000 we are well on our way to establishing a sizeable fund.
The Trust is already supporting three learners at Queen’s College, and we look forward to awarding more bursaries in the years ahead!
The Ride took place in April this year, with ten cyclists starting in Heidelberg, on the outskirts of Johannesburg. The group was joined by additional cyclists along the way, with over a hundred cyclists and five walkers eventually crossing the finish line.
Thank you to all our loyal friends, families, supporters and sponsors who kept us going along the way, and who contributed so generously towards our fundraising efforts.
The dates for the 2013 1965Ride are Thursday 11 April to Thursday 18 April. We have already started organising next year’s event – watch this space for updates.
