Durban Green Corridor (DGC) worked with the BSi Steel dusi2c team for the second year last weekend to ensure that all mountain bike trails for the adventurous riders were clear, safe and fun for all. Their trail teams worked hard to make sure the trails were in top condition. In addition, a number of their sites were involved in activations around the water tables at Kwa Dabeka as well as at our eNanda Adventures site at Inanda Dam. It was wonderful to see the sense of community spirit behind the race with children and adults cheering the riders on as they passed and offering them refreshment as well as the vital input from DGC staff at these sites.
A huge congratulations and thanks must go to the DGC riding team who did DGC proud at the event! Stephan Gwensa, Cosmos Goba, Musa Ngimajola and Gabi Ngcobo are all keen riders and work with the DGC Youth Mountain Bike Programme. They paired up with Wayne Hartmann and Henry Verhoeven from Grindrod, Devlin Fogg from Bike Life as well as Frank Lubbe.
DGC would also like to thank all those riders that so kindly donated kit to their special cause at both registration and at the finish line.
“People were extremely generous… commented Anna da Graca (Marketing Manager at DGC) “…We received all kinds of kit from gloves, shorts and shirts to shoes and helmets. Our MTB Youth Programme leaders, were so excited to see what was coming in. We would like to thank everyone that donated kit and still encourage others to do the same even now the event has passed. If anyone is keen to donate more kit please contact me on email@example.com
The donated kit will be used by the DGC Youth MTB Programme which is currently active at eNanda Adventures at Inanda Dam, which is one of the water stops en route for the race where many riders will remember the crowds of supporting children and community members in the DGC green colours on their way through this area.
In addition to kit, the Durban Green Corridor is also in need of financial donations to enable them to replicate their youth programme across their others sites at iSithumba Adventues (near to the overnight stop), at Kwa Dabeka (the second water table on Sunday morning), at The Green Hub (next to the finish line) as well as at Maphepheteni (a new site at Inanda Dam). The programme needs funds to purchase bikes and to be able to pay team leaders to motivate and supervise the children taking part.
Anna continued…“If you are in a position to make a donation either personally or professionally (via you company Corporate Social Responsibility programme) then we would love to hear from you. We would be more than happy to take you to eNanda Adventures to see the programme in action if you would like to.”
“Once again thank you for the kit donations so far! We hope you enjoyed the trails and come back again with friends, family and fellow riders to enjoy all the DGC has to offer”
