FAW80 Lockdown Challenge raises over R 30 000 for sterilisations!
The weekend of 18 – 19 April was to have been the the FAW80 Cycle Challenge. Although it was postponed, the riders didn’t relax – they had a ‘virtual’ challenge at home! The goal was to do 30 hours in total between them in a relay format – as long as it was 30 hours continuous exercise. Between them, they did 30 hours. They then challenged the public to do exercise to raise funds too!
Because it was FAW80, people were challenged to do 48 minutes of exercise (any kind) within 48 hours and raise at least R100 per person. And people really joined in with excitement! In the end, over R 10 000 was raised (R 30 000 if we include the amazing R 20 000 raised singlehandedly by Pieter Du Preez!), which will go towards animal sterilisations.
We are just blown away by how caring and supportive people are, even in the toughest of times. YOU ARE ALL HEROES!
