Team Name: LumoHawk
The LumoHawk Foundation is a small non-profit charity. Started by Joel Stransky and Robbie Nilsen the charity raises funds for underprivileged children with a focus on educational and sporting needs.
It is the belief of all involved in managing this small charity that all children should grow up inspired and with a sense of hope, and an education is an important part of this process.
The focus remains the same today. The foundation assists a number of orphanages with the educational costs of the children as well as providing training for many of the "house Moms" in order for these special ladies to be able to begin the educational process of the young children at an early age.
The Foundation also provides a few tertiary education bursaries and has assisted in one or two special needs cases. The LumoHawk Foundation also assists in buying essentials for the kids, such as mattresses, clothing, blankets and even Christmas presents, when the need arises.
Many of the children supported are AIDS orphans and in turn many, but not all, are HIV positive and are on anti-retroviral medication.
The foundation is run and managed by the directors and a couple of very special volunteers. This ensures that there are almost no administrative costs and all monies collected go directly to the worthy causes.
Team Name: Cape Town Giants
Cape Town Giants Cycling Club promotes the amateur and professional sport of cycling, encouraging community participation at all levels using the bicycle for recreation, fitness and competition in a socially conducive environment for the enjoyment of its members. It aims to pool the regions strongest junior riders and present them with the best opportunity to gain exposure to the cycling world.
Team Name: Velokhaya
At Velokhaya we use cycling to involve children living in marginalised communities in a positive after-school activity, one which builds their self-esteem and keeps them off the streets and away from the social ills prevalent in their communities, such as gangsterism, crime and substance abuse.
Our aim is to use cycling to grow champions on and off the bike; this is because sport gives young children the skills and opportunities they need to make a success of their lives skills such as commitment, determination, dedication, teamwork and how to win and lose.
