Complete Cyclist goes Pink for CANSA
Thank you to Complete Cyclist for supporting CANSA’s Women’s Health Campaign – see letter:
We’re a cycling retail franchise, with stores in Bryanston (JHB) and Houtbay (Cape Town). We have a growing club and try where we can to get involved with the community. A few months ago, we decided it would be a great idea for us to turn the yellow strip on our cycling kit into a PINK strip, and organize an event to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
The idea became a reality shortly after a little planning, and communication was sent out for people to pre-order shirts for the ride. Such was the success of the idea and design of the kit (now with pink on it), we had people buying kit who could not even make the ride! The ride took place on the 28th Oct 2012, with a nice turn out for our first crack at this.
Cancer is something that truly affects us all and we felt the warmth of what we were doing yesterday when out on the streets of JHB. R100 from each shirt sale and money from key sponsors were donated to CANSA.
The main sponsors for the event were:
- Land Rover Sandton – Financial Sponsorship plus a custom branded Range Rover Evoque for the event
- NUK – Financial Sponsorship
- SebaMed – Financial Sponsorship
- Future Life SA – Financial Sponsorship, plus product and prize give-away at the ride
- Urban Fitness Outdoor
- Complete Cyclist
