Canal Walk Shopping Centre (CWSC) once again hosts the annual charity Canal Walk Cyclethon in aid of the Smile Foundation.
Taking place on Saturday, 2 March 2019, Centre Court at CWSC will be filled with eager cyclists of all ages who will help raise funds to give the gift of a smile to young children in need.
The sessions (using stationary bikes donated by Planet Fitness), are 50-minutes long and start from 10am, with the last at 1pm. Cost of entry is R160 pp.
If last year was anything to go by, hundreds of participants will join in the fun, as The Canal Walk Cyclethon is not only an excellent way for families to get fit while doing something meaningful, or for novices to take their first ride, it is also the ideal warm up for the fast approaching Cycle Tour. Corporates are also encouraged to participate – with their colleagues, challenge competitors, or even sponsor a time slot.
Hedley Lewis, Smile Foundation CEO, is delighted.,“It is an absolute privilege to partner with Canal Walk Shopping Centre, an organisation that genuinely and wholeheartedly comes on board for the benefit of those in need. Their commitment in uplifting South African children’s lives is hugely commendable. We are hugely grateful for this unbelievable opportunity and look forward to many more future collaborations.”
Canal Walk Shopping Centre’s, Marketing Manager, Vanessa Herbst is just as happy that the centre will be hosting this community minded event again, she said: “Last year we were blown away by the support from members of the public, companies, individuals, mums, dads, school kids and even random shoppers who joined in. It’s a good feeling when people come together for a good cause and especially when that cause is to help others smile. We can’t wait to see what this year’s event brings.”
Imagine being able to smile unencumbered by disfigurement forever more. Imagine then, the power that particular smile can have on the person giving it and those receiving. With that in mind, it’s time to get your gear on and saddle up!
