A year later, on 15 November 2015, the Stepping Stone Hospice 947 Momentum Cycling Team did it again! The team, consisting of 85 cyclists this time, took on the challenge and a whopping R612 000 was raised for Stepping Stone Hospice.
This year Telkom has joined forces with 947 to host the 20th edition of Joburg’s biggest cycling event on 20 November 2016. With the registration date for cyclists to register, extended to the 30th of September 2016, we still hope to reach our target of 100 cyclists in our team. Our team currently consists of 61 registered riders. Just a gentle reminder when you register online at www.cyclechallenge.co.za to add Stepping Stone Hospice as a Charity Bond. Once done, to also send your details to Judy Joubert at email@example.com.
The team’s goal with this fundraising effort is to raise no less than R700 000, funds that will go towards our “Help us Build, Brick by Brick” project – a 505sqm addition to our existing In-Patient Unit in New Market Park, Alberton.
Our unit currently has 8 wards, two of which can cater for long term patients. However, we want to add on family rooms, in other words, wards which can cater for a family member to sleep over with his/her beloved one, especially in cases where the patients are very young.
Each cyclist in the Hospice team has been requested to secure a minimum sponsorship of R2 500.
So if you are not entering as a cyclist, you can still contribute by coming on board as a sponsor for one of the cyclists. Stepping Stone Hospice can provide you with a BEE certificate, a SED letter and an 18A Tax Relief certificate if required. Please don’t hesitate to contact Marietjie Tame at Stepping Stone Hospice should you require any further queries or need any assistance with the sponsorship: Marietjie Tame – firstname.lastname@example.org– 082 337 5713
