Charity Challenge 2012

 2011 Challenge team

Following the success of last year’s challenge we at GVI Cape Town are doing another challenge.  Last year we raised over £10,000 by putting a team of volunteers through a grueling  five days of cycling and hiking covering 350km. That team received phenomenal support all the way from other GVI members in South Africa and also from friends and family back home.

Our team expanded to 60 people in our final day’s climb of Table Mountain.

This year we are tackling the Hoerikwaggo trail. An 80km hike from Cape Point to the top of Table Mountain.   We are setting ourselves the challenge of doing it in just 3 days! Once again a small core team will pit themselves against the full trail but they will be joined by as many others as possible for the final day.

We are also running a community event at ACJ Primary School in Nomzamo.  It’s based around getting the local children active. The school has around 2000 children but it is currently being renovated. There is little space for the students to play in around the school, and this impacts on our space for Sports lessons too. The sports lessons we run as part of the Cape Town Sports project struggle for resources as well as space. Some of funds raised by this challenge will go towards sports resources and somewhere safe to store them.
