Unity College is a special needs school that is organising to ride the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge to raise much needed funds towards their FOOTBALL field (previous goal was the school’s SWIMMING | THERAPY POOL but now Growthpoint Properties has funded that so all prior funds raised will go towards the next goal; the field). It will be a fun day out for the whole family and Unity Pedal For Disabilities would appreciate your support. There are 3 ways you could help us, either by riding the Pedal For Disabilities Challenge and finding sponsorship for yourself (Pledge Form) or by taking the Pledge form and raising funds for Unity College in your private capacity or by being a sponsor. The event takes place Sunday the 15th of November 2015.

947 Pedal For Disabilities 2015

Our 38 Unity riders raised R43 500.00! We achieved this with half the amount of riders as we had in 2014 and half the value brought in that year. It is still money we didn’t have so a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that RODE, that fundraised for us. Your SUPPORT on and off the bike is hugely admired and respected! Thank you so very very much! And just like that, it’s all over. What an exciting day for riders and supporters. Supporters started trickling down to designated supporter spots from as early as 7am on Sunday. Riders were in contact with the Team Leader to say they were at the starting point. The word “butterflies” could be found on a text or two from enthused riders before their start. To say there was “A LOT” of excitement for both riders and supporters would be an understatement! To see some tweets from the day please click here. For more tweets or simply view all, here. Don’t forget to visit our Pedal For Disabilities FaceBook page  or update yourself with photos from the day on our slider. THANK YOU to riders that put their bodies through that gruelling heat and horrible wind. We respect you and what you’ve done for the School! …AND THE WINNER OF THE Kwalata game lodge weekend away…DOUG KENNAUGH!
