VVS Projects - “Live to better the lives of others"
Once every quarter we identify a charity or community that is in need. We call on our network of friends and colleagues to participate and join us by donating our TIME, our SKILLS and our STUFF.
We are all in lockdown mode,and in desperate need of things to do to stay busy.
Let’s all jump in. We are challenging you to clear out all old cycling/running kit as well as old parts that you might have lying around in your garage or in a cupboard. We are partnering with the guys at Magoeba Trek who share in our vision, which is to help someone who cannot afford to buy his/her own.
There is a special need for smaller sizes (suitable for children). We will be handing all items that we collect over to their team, who have identified that there is a big demand amongst their Heanertsburg and Magoebaskloof community.
Further details to follow. Herewith statement from Magoeba Trek’s race organizers:
“We believe that sport changes lives for the better and would, therefore, like to help newcomer mountain-bikers overcome the significant financial barrier to entry that this great sport poses.In order to this, we would like to partner with VVS and encourage you to clear your cupboards of unused mtb items during this COVID19 lockdown period. We can use anything from old bicycles (especially kids bikes), helmets, backpacks, cleats, clothing, tools...you name it!Last year we had a very fit local youngster arrive to participate in one of our one-day races. Sadly he did not own a helmet and couldn’t ride! It was heartbreaking"
