The last pledges are still coming in and we are ALMOST THERE! R50 000 for the clinic surgery is juuuust over there and every little bit helps. :-) Thank you soooooo much to every single person (and furkid) who has generously donated for this cause. You are each making a real difference. It is so easy with Back-A-Buddy: you can donate with credit card, EFT, or PayPal - all secure pages - and locally or from overseas
Our riders are celebs (as well they should be after their epic undertaking)! Thank you Netwerk24 for included the FAW80 Cycle Challenge today! :-) http://www.netwerk24.com/ZA/Tygerburger/Nuus/cyclists-brave-challenge-for-faw-20170523-2
The awesome team were greeted by supporters - human AND canine (adopted dogs)!
And they have arrived! :-) WELL DONE to all the riders and support team folks who braved the loooong trek from Oudtshoorn to Melkbos. You are total rock stars! :-) (Pictured are some of the riders in front of the sponsored support vehicles, being congratulated by FAW supporter, Karen, and her rescued greyhounds.)
The riders just passed Philadelphia - 20km to the finish at Melkbosstrand (Strand Street parking)! The riders are nearly there. Doing it FAW the animals. You are all amazing! THANK YOU to everyone who have donated! It is so easy with Back-A-Buddy: you can donate with credit card, EFT, or PayPal - all secure pages - and locally or from overseas.
Tackling the steep and dangerous Bains Kloof Pass. Their hard work is for the animals and knowing that people are backing their undertaking for the FAW clinic Surgery keeps them going! THANK YOU to everyone who donated - and the donations have even crept up overnight. It is so easy with Back-A-Buddy: you can donate with credit card, EFT, or PayPal - all secure pages - and locally or from overseas (that tenner in your wallet is a lot of money in SA terms!).
The dream team has reached Bains Kloof after a loooong night of pedalling - and they're not done yet. Due to arrive in Melkbos around 2PM. ------------------------------------ Knowing that people are donating to help the animals is really keeping them going - THANK YOU to everyone who has sponsored while they ride FAW the animals!

And they just passed Laingsberg! Next stop: Maatjiesfontein - that will be the halfway point and the riders get to stop for something to eat and put their weary feet up for a bit of a break.

Keep going, guys! :-) Do it FAW them!
saw the riders having a lunch stop at Seweweekspoort - down, about to go to Melkbosstrand. You guys are PAWsome!
Good morning all! Our riders have already been on the road for a couple of hours (since 6AM) & all going well. A cycle ride like this needs vehicle back up to provide help and keep the riders safe. Thank you N1-City Land Rover for the vehicles and to Pointline for branding it with the sponsors' logos. N1-City Land Rover Pointline WildTVAfrica Smart Practitioners Radio2Radio DayTrippers
AND THEY'RE OFF! Wish these awesome folks well. This group of 20 riders and 11 support people (driving providing food, etc) is led by our own volunteer, Belinda. <3 Definitely an amazing endeavor to raise funds for the animals of Fisantekraal and surrounds. Imagine all the sterilisations we'll be able to do soon... And, of course, our adorable mascots are going too. They will be arriving at Melkbosstrand on Sunday at 12h00.
