On 15 May 2016, one (seemingly) ordinary man will embark on an extraordinary expedition, cycling 12 280 Km from Beijing to Istanbul- a feat to find the leader within. The Silk Route Cycle Challenge will take actor Ivan Zimmerman through countries like China, Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Turkey. Zimmerman will cycle a gruelling 125 Km per day over the course of 145 days, attempting to raise awareness of the numerous educational challenges faced by South African students. His message is one: No matter how tough it gets, a leader never quits.
Why not draw inspiration from Zimmerman’s courage and relentless pursuit of success, and help encourage students of underprivileged backgrounds overcome. Simply donate to this cause via SnapScan, SMS, EFT or a Monthly Debit Order (details above.)
