Roadies - 94.7 Cycle Challenge

Thabang leaving on The Lonely Road Challenge

In true Roadie style, a minimum of fifty cyclists will take to the streets on Sunday 20 November 2011, to raise funds for the support and care of orphaned and vulnerable children, through The Lonely Road Foundation.

The 'Roadie' team will be riding as part of the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge Ride for a Purpose campaign, and a Charity Bond team has been registered.

The event fits in so well with The Lonely Road Foundation, as it is reminicent of our Founder, Thabang Skwambane's, Lonely Road Challenge which took place in 2007.

Thabang cycled alone and unsupported across six countries from Johannesburg to Tanzania, a distance of nearly 5 500km, and then climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with a team of 11 climbers.  The purpose of The Lonely Road Challenge was to raise awareness and financial support for the plight of orphans and vulnerable children in Southern Africa.  Thabang's journey was a poignant reminder of the lives of the children who grow up alone and unsupported through childhood and adolescence, and then, once they have passed these milestones, they are expected to become productive members of society - a 'mountain' to climb at the end of such a 'lonely road.
