THIS year's Dads’ Charity Cycle Tour saw a 20-strong group of dads, moms and friends take on the 668km ride from Johannesburg to Durban to raise funds for charity. The unfavourable winds made the ride even more challenging, but the R350 000 raised for charity more than made up for it.

“I have just had the privilege and honour of joining 19 other Dads' Charity members on riding the 12th annual Dads' Charity Challenge from Johannesburg to Durban some 680-odd kms to raise much-needed funds for various beneficiaries such as The Sunflower Fund," said Wayne Baker, the Dads’ Charity Challenge chairman.

“We have been supporting The Sunflower Fund for approximately 10 years and hope to continue to support this worthy cause for another 10 years.

“One of our main aims while we raise funds during the year and of course riding down and post-riding is to continue to create the education, awareness and recruitment of donors needed,” said Baker.

The five main beneficiaries for the riders this year include, The Sunflower Fund, Fulton School for the Deaf, the Gauteng Down Syndrome Association, Qhubeka and Choc Childhood Cancer Foundation.
