Rivonia Round Table: Jo–Burg Cycle Challenge

Rivonia Round Table: Jo–Burg Cycle Challenge

Contact info

Over the Long weekend of Thursday, 20th to Sunday, 23rd of September 2007 The Rivonia Round Table will be sending 6 (very unfit) Round Tablers from Johannesburg (Jo) to Pietermaritsburg (burg) on bicycles, with the intention of cycling 440km’s in 4 days.

Round Table Southern Africa is a non-political, non-denominational association of young men between the ages of 18 and 40, embracing representatives of nearly every profession and occupation, whose objects encompass the encouragement of high ethical standards, the promotion of social intercourse and fellowship among young professional men, the quickening of individual interest in everything affecting the public welfare, and the promotion of understanding amongst peoples of different cultural, language and political backgrounds.

Rivonia Round Table has organised an annual Christmas party for children in the Claremont area of Johannesburg for many years. The majority of the children are from the Claremont Primary School, and for a family to qualify for residence in a council house in this area, the entire gross income of the household should not be in excess of about R2500 per month. That leaves very little to support these young kids who are extremely grateful for every little bit of charity on the day

Children in the area have come to rely on what has been dubbed the “White Christmas Party” for a day of fun and excitement and an opportunity to do things that are far from the norm. The jumping castles are ready and waiting when they arrive at 9am and from there on the fun never stops! Attractions over the years have included magic shows, face painting, foam machines, fireworks displays, a great feast of hamburgers and hotdogs and of course without the kind donations of our generous sponsors, none of this would be possible.
