The Wannabees Road Committee would like members to celebrate Women’s Day on 9 August by doing something for charity. The committee has arranged for an easy road ride through to Rooiels, starting at Lord Charles at 9h30. On the way back cyclists are invited to pop in at Barley’s at the Sanctuary where there will be pizza and a beer (or similar) for each rider from 11h30 onwards. AND as it’s Womens Day, we would like everyone to invite their partners along so the women in your lives as celebrated as well.
This event is open to ALL club members irrespective of whether they join the charity ride or not. Please RSVP as soon as possible.
There will be a raffle held to raise funds for the ILoveBoobies charity in Stellenbosch that raises money to bring mobile health clinics to remote areas for early breast cancer detection. ILoveBoobies for CANSA Active started back in 2015 when a mother and daughter team, Nicky and Mikayla Webb secured an entry to the ABSA Cape Epic. They were determined to make the long hours of training and preparation count for something so they teamed up with CANSA Active and ILoveBoobies was born. A few years on, they have athletes competing in prestigious national events such as Iron Man, the Comrades Marathon, the Coronation Double Century Race, the Joberg2C, the Absa Cape Epic, the Sani2C, the Two Oceans Marathon, the 36ONE MTB Challenge, the Trans Baviaans and the Wines2Whales, as well as renowned international events including the Swiss Epic, the Trans Alps, and the Vuelta Espana.
ILoveBoobies 4 CANSA Active’s mission is to promote an active and healthy lifestyle, which reduces the risk of cancer, while also raising funds and awareness for CANSA.
