BIG 6 EXCLUSIVE RIDE
To all our Big 6 riders, helpers and sponsors…
We did it!
With your participation, we pulled off the first-ever Big 6 Exclusive Ride, and wow, what an event it was!
With your help, we raised an amazing R302 530,75!!! These funds will be used exclusively for the conservation and community projects of Zululand Conservation Trust and the Zululand Rhino Orphanage.
The Big 6 corporates who made this all happen, who brought the best energy and an adventurous spirit must be applauded – with little forewarning and a jump into the deep end we came out winning with Nedbank Private Wealth, Access World, RCL Foods, Investec, Teichmann Civils, Power Stores and Sequel Props. Thank you for making the first Big 6 such a great success!
Winter Warmer Project
All the blankets that kept the bicycles protected have been donated to Mzamoyethu crèche, one of the three pre-schools we support on the Western boundary of Manyoni. Each child has taken home a blanket that will keep them warm this winter – thank you to everyone for the lovely thick warm blankets that will make a big difference to the cold nights out in Inkukwini community homes.
Thank you to our Sponsors
It goes without saying, that without the support from Manyoni Private Game Reserve, none of this would have been possible. So to the management team that kept the bar going and the camp running – and to every person who marshalled on the route, assisted with game viewers and kept things running in the background, thank you!
To our sponsors Steely for the water bottles, IPSS medical team that made sure injuries were dealt with (Poen thanks for keeping them busy every day!) to the RSA team Andre and Tony – your assistance with making sure the bikes were safely transferred on the first day to keeping an eye on repairs throughout the 2 days -thank you! Sanitech for a discount on toilet transport. LT Printers for the donation of luggage labels and rider boards that looked incredible. Poison City Brewery for the donation of beers at the ever-popular Beer tent on Day 1. To 031 Distillery for the craft gin donation that we used at the pop-up gin bar which we enjoyed until that elephant chased us away! To Grant Brokensha from The Bigger Picture Films for the videography and photographs.
