The Anna Foundation children were in cheering on the world’s best mountain bikers at theUCI MTB World Cup – Stellenbosch on 10 March 2018. What an epic event! The Anna Foundation children benefited from watching the riders and being stunned by their technical MTB skills at this world class event. Cycling is part of the Anna Foundation’s sports programme and developing an appreciation of the sport is important. Thank you to the organisers and well done to the riders – what an inspiration.

As mountain biking forms part of the Anna Foundation sportsprogramme, part of the educational process is to attend and be inspired by international events. The group marveled atthe world’s best riders making the tough track look easy. Curtley Hendricks, one of our best riders, participated in Virgin Active’s Beat the Best stationary bike race and most of the children braved theRadtraxpumptrack and were energised in the Virgin Active’s kids zone. One of our fit facilitators, Alet Wallfrom Rouxbyn, did so well in Virgin Active’spublic activation that she won the competition and was awarded a racing bicycle!Woolworthskindly subsidised a delicious lunch and snacksto keep up the spirited energy of the big group.
