This year’s Amashova saw fewer people donning the We are Durban jerseys due to the change in age limits by the organisers. Due to safety reasons the Amashova organisers increased the age limit from 8 years old to 10 – which was really a good call! This year we had 39 cyclists ride in the 3 different distances in the We are Durban colours. The goal was to raise R160,000 this year in order to make 2 dreams a reality. One was to provide a fully equipped containerised kitchen to a feeding scheme in KwaMashu, we had previously been given a quote of R60,000.00 for this. The second was to provide a certified course in NPO Management to 30 NPO heads in the Durban area.
We sadly did not reach our dual goal, but the 39 people did an incredible job of raising R66217,7. We will be finalising the order of the kitchen shortly. As soon as we have pictures of the kitchen we will post them for you… Thank you cyclists for your commitment and effort! A special mention must be made of Carmen de Lange who raised in excess of R10,000.00 on her own! She has won a prize from Holomatrix. Our other kind sponsors for the event which helped our team reach the end were; Future Life, Nature Zone Fitness Water and Blistex. Thank you so much!
