A buzz is beginning to build! The Cape Town Cycle Tour (affectionately known as “The Argus”) is just ten days away. Now in its 40th year, the world’s largest timed cycling event is set to have some 35 000 riders in 2017.
A group, the #DominoRiders, has entered the race wearing the colours of The Domino Foundation because they fully subscribe to the amazing impact this NPO is making each day on the lives of some 5000 of the most vulnerable people in South Africa. The valiant crew who are pedalling specifically in support of The Domino Foundation’s Recycle Swop Shop programme in the Western Cape are: Sarah Kennedy; Richard Mun-Gavin; Richard Seiler; Shaun Tait; Riaan van der Westhuizen; Nathan van der Westhuizen; Mark van Pletzen; Tim Batchelder; Brad Joyce; Matthew Wilkes; Kieren Vels and Jonathan Salzwedel.
Towards the end of last year, we saw The Domino Foundation go “national” when the Western Cape initiative, the Recycle Swop Shop, came into the Domino “Family”. With the Foundation’s hashtag for the 2017 Argus being #Cycle4reCycling, the #DominoRiders saw it as a particularly strong reason to ride for this dynamic organisation.
We are excited to invite you to support the #DominoRiders’ tackling the 109 kilometres by pledging financially to their efforts. This way, they won’t only have carried the Domino banner on 12 March 2017, but they would also be able to give into the impactful work of The Domino Foundation which creates essential structures to support their seven programmes meeting individuals’ and communities’ needs physically, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually.
As a friend and supporter of The Domino Foundation, you can find the #DominoRiders’ profiles on the CTCTFundracers website, the fund raising platform they are using to raising funds for their ride. They have set a target of R10 000 (R1 000 per rider) and so are keen to see you pledging in support of their efforts!
The platform is easy to use, safe and secure and people can leave messages with their donations which can be made through Visa, MC, AMEX, Debit & Credit cards, PayPal & Bitcoin.
Overseas and local friends and family can donate easily and securely. Donations go directly to the Domino Foundation via the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust account.
Companies who want to support the #DominoRiders, can be issued a Section 18 tax receipt by The Domino Foundation. However, the donation would need to be made directly to The Domino Foundation bank account and not through the online Fundracers’ platform.
In anticipation of your positive response, the #DominoRiders and The Domino Foundation say a big “Thank You”!
