Charity Batches

One of the objectives of the aQuelle Tour Durban has been to try and use the event to make a difference in the greater Durban community and to that end, the event has been proudly associated with The Domino Foundation since the Club Cappuccino Foundation Trust took over the event in 2011. Over the past few years we have offered the opportunity for riders to support The Domino Foundation and Choc Cows by riding in the Charity batch and this year we hope to broaden our impact with the addition of further charities who will also be participating in the Charity Batch Challenge.

We hope to see the Charity Batch grow from strength to strength as riders commit to enter the 45km or 100km rides in support of one of the charities. Each entry to ride in the Charity Batch will incur a R50 donation which will be added to the entry fee and will be distributed directly to the selected charity. One of the benefits that you will enjoy, over and above being able to make a donation, is a preferred starting batch which will see you heading off ahead of most of the field in the 45km or 100km events.

Thank you in advance for your support. Remember to select one of the charities below when you enter the 45km or 100km.

“The roots of The Cows are embedded in the cycling community,” says Daisy, the national co-ordinator of The Cows.

“It was the 2008 edition of the 947 Cycle Challenge that was the catalyst for this lively bunch of men and women to channel their passion for sport to support the CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation of South Africa. This quickly spilled over into KwaZulu-Natal where the very strong Herd of The Cows is largely made up of cycling enthusiasts.

The aQuellé Tour Durban has been the annual highlight for the KZN Herd, where the goal is three-fold. One - to have as much fun as possible on the day. Two - to raise awareness of the issues facing underprivileged kids battling cancer. And three – to raise money for CHOC and the amazing work they do running the CHOC Houses around the country that keeps kids close to their families while they are being treated.

And the aQuellé Tour Durban Charity batch is where it all happens. The Herd of The Cows is open to anyone willing to contribute to our three basic goals.

HERO777-Logo
Hero777 is an initiative of the ENZA Trust. We aim to raise awareness about organ, tissue and blood donation in order to save lives.

Hero777 was started when Matthew Legemaate who was at the time waiting for a heart and double lung transplant realised he didn't have much more time and knew he had very little chance of a transplant. He wanted to leave legacy of helping others so decided to set himself a target of registering 50 000 new organ and tissue donors. Just months later he did in fact have a heart and bi-lateral heart transplant and despite the odds against him survived. He continues to raise awareness in various forms in order to help save others lives. Matthew will be competing in the 45 km aQuelle Tour Durban with a team of cyclists to show what a difference a transplant can make in someone's life.
