On 15 May 2016, one (seemingly) ordinary man embarked on an extraordinary expedition, cycling 12 280 Km from Beijing to Istanbul- a feat to find the leader within. The Silk Route Cycle Challenge took actor Ivan Zimmerman through countries like China, Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, and Turkey. Zimmerman cycled a grueling 125 Km per day over the course of 145 days, raising awareness of the numerous educational challenges faced by South African students. His message was 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.)
