Annual Cycling Tour
The Annual Cycling tour is one of DSAWC’s main fundraising events and a huge contributor to our yearly resources. This year the tour will be from the 26th of February to the 3rd of March 2018. Follow us on Facebook for daily updates when the tour starts.
For the last 17 years we have been the beneficiaries of the Mountain View Cycling Club (Goodwood) while they cycle annually all the way from Bellville to Mossel Bay. The tour consists out of a group of nine cyclists, two DSAWC personnel, as well as one young person with Down syndrome. We stop at various towns to create Down syndrome awareness and raise funds, by visiting schools, churches and the local business sector.
The Down Syndrome Association Western Cape is a parent driven initiative. Although the government does provide some financial aid, the organisation relies on the community, corporate donors and fundraising initiatives to provide and sustain services.
You can contribute by making a financial contribution, donating food (coffee, snacks for energy and refreshments), or sponsoring fuel for the vehicles accompanying the cyclists. This will help us to limit the tour expenses and ensure that all the money collected can be used to support our cause of serving people with Down syndrome and their families in the Western Cape.
