|On the 6th April 2013, roughly 175 intrepid Capetonians will attempt to see how many times they can summit Table Mountain via Platteklip Gorge for Charity. Each lap is 5.5km in distance, 760 metres of climbing, and will take approximately 2 hours. The route up Platteklip Gorge includes 800 double size steps over a distance of 2.1km. Once at the top, the contestants need to run to the upper cable station, catch a lift down and then run back to the start.
Donations raised over the past 6 years by Argusx2, Charity Challenge and individual donors, funded the grassroots Masikulisane Creche as well as other Samora Machel and Kosovo creches (in Philippi) as part of a holistic early learning intervention. By late 2009 the Masikhulisane Creche was registered with Social Development as an Educare Centre and are now reaching a place of greater self-sustainability. See www.aidsresourcecentre.org.za for creche details and photo gallery. Click here for updates on current Early Childhood Development (ECD) projects in Kosovo and Samora Machel.
In 2011 we managed to raise R400 000.00 for the creches in the area. Last year there was a total of R534 050 pledged for the Sinenjongo High School. We will be supporting the Sinenjongo High School again this year.
We urge you to sponsor our contestants generously. In this 'credit crunch' year, corporate sponsors are hard to find, so we need individuals to give handsomely.
All donations are tax deductable and audited. Please click here to sponsor a contestant.
If you are a corporate that would like to get involved, please contact us using the contacts page. We have banner space on the website for all generous sponsors!
We are also looking for all kinds of sponsorship required for a sporting event, such as Lanyards, liquid refreshments etc.
