It’s hard to believe that 2018 marks the seventh year that we’re participating in the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge; and once again, we encourage riders to use their mobility for the benefit of those without. The main objective of taking part in this race is not only to raise funds, but to raise awareness of rare diseases, too.
As you’ll know if you participated last year, this is a fun day for everyone involved. The Rare Diseases SA hospitality tent will be set up for the enjoyment of riders, family members and sponsors – and remember to try out our amarula ice cream and adult slushies!
There are still a number of sponsorship options available, from jersey branding to sponsoring a dedicated water point or prize/product sponsorship.
If you want to ride for Rare, you’ll enjoy team benefits that include:
Earlier start time
Team cycling jersey
Pre- and post- race hospitality (the infamous hospitality site with the colourful beanbags, adult slushy machines and ALL the team spirit!)
Two dedicated water points along the route (think salted potatoes, ice cold Cokes, Bar One choccies – and sun block, liberally applied by our awesome volunteers)
Invitation to the annual pre-race pasta party
The chance to be AWESOME and use your mobility for the benefit of those without it!
