THE RACE WITH A DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

Written by Marketing. Posted in News & Events

Hyundai Somerset West is proud to be associated with Helderberg Hospice.

 Join Helderberg Hospice on Saturday 19 May 2018 at Somerset House from 6am to 6pm for their annual Cycling for Life event.

Teams of cyclists compete over 12 hours to clock up the most km’s raced on a stationary bike in 1 day. This unique event symbolises the endurance with which every cancer sufferer faces their condition. By participating you are also enabling Helderberg Hospice to sustain the special care which our patients receive.

Make up a team of up to 12 riders (a corporate team, a social team, or a youth/scholar team), and each of you can ride for an hour. Or if you are fitter, you can make up a team of up to 3 riders – in this case each of you would ride for 4 hours. For the very brave, we have a solo category, where 1 rider completes all 12 hours alone. The entrance fee for teams is R3,600 and for soloists it is R500 (we have sponsorship forms available).

Cycling for Life is a day for the whole family – there’s plenty of food and drinks on sale, big screen TV and fun activities for children. It’s a great opportunity for corporate team building and staff or scholar community service programmes. Many people ride because they have been personally touched by the special care of Helderberg Hospice. Some ride in memory of a loved one, others in solidarity with friends or family receiving treatment for cancer.

Our main sponsor is Hyundai Somerset West. We invite you to be part of this amazing event by either entering a team or providing financial sponsorship to support those who ride to sustain the dedicated care of Helderberg Hospice!
