Rhodes to host cycla-thon

Date Released: Fri, 3 August 2012 16:48 +0200

The Rhodes University Health Suite will be hosting its 12hour cyclathon on 31 August.

Organiser of the event, Leigh Raymond, said the aim was to involve as many individuals from Rhodes University and the Grahamstown community as possible, to raise money for the Hands to Hands Charity Group.

Last year's cyclathon allowed the organising committee to make a substantial donation to the charity.

"I am appealing to you to once again donate some time (and a few Rands) to this cause," said Raymond.

 There will be a total of 25 bikes whose saddles organisers are hoping to fill before the event. Businesses, and organisations and clubs are urged to take up a one-hour slot, or to book a bike for the 12 hours and cycle as a team effort. For more information or to book your bike/slot contact Leigh on 072 345 6415.
