It has been close to impossible to contain our excitement about the fact that Radio Personality Gavin (Vin) Deysel from the 947 Breakfast Xpress, has chosen to ride the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge for Botshabelo this year!!

Gavin is riding for us as part of his contribution to the “Ride for a Purpose” campaign for this year’s Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge. Gavin completed the Cycle challenge in 2013 and he enjoyed the process so much that he has continued cycling and will this year focus his ride on supporting Botshabelo!

Botshabelo is a multi-faceted non-profit organisation, meaning that we run three programs to educate and support our surrounding community: a Teacher Training programme, Urban Kids pre-school and of course the Botshabelo Babies home.

We are exceptionally proud and excited to welcome Vin Deysel onto our team this year! Get behind Vin and the many other cyclists that have chosen to ride for Botshabelo…support us, it’ll mean the world to us, and you’ll be investing the lives of our precious children…you’ll be investing in their futures!
You can support us as a company or as individuals…

We are hoping to raise over R90 000 through this year’s campaign…help us reach our target, and of course…we’d love to raise MUCH more than that!!! Together we can!

This year all funds raised by our Ride for a Purpose endeavour will be directed to the Babies Home. Our Babies Home cares for orphaned and abandoned babies.  We have been a safe haven for over 150 children since we opened our doors in 2000. We typically have 13-15 children in our care at any one time and our focus is always to provide them with a “normal” home as far as possible, and most importantly to place them with a forever family either through adoption or reunification as soon as possible. Botshabelo relies heavily on donations in order to provide the best possible care and a hope of a bright future for these beautiful children.

Thanks for supporting Botshabelo…we really do appreciate it! We cannot continue to give our children the best care without your generosity!

We are looking forward to this year’s ride and can’t wait to see Vin Deysel in action for our team!

Watch this space for updates…this is one great adventure to get in on!
