In the 2021 edition of the FNB Wines2Whales 3-day stage mountain biking race, Team Anna Foundation rode to raise over R100 000 in donations for the local charity to be able to open a new afterschool programme at the Primary School in Raithby – a rural farming community in the Cape Winelands. This November, the team of Six Stellenbosch Superstars are returning to the trails to raise funds to further develop the project and ensure the rural children of Raithby are reached with the academic and social support necessary for life-long learning.
After achieving a few podium positions in last year’s event, and with both a MTB SA Champion and Grandmasters SA Gravel Champion in their ranks, the group of Winelands residents are feeling confident about taking home a trophy or two in this year’s event.
Founder and Director Anna Brom says, “As an official charity of the FNB Wines2Whales, we are absolutely delighted to be able to use this prestigious event as a platform to raise awareness of the work that we do to address the educational and social needs of disadvantaged school children in rural and farming communities, and to highlight the positive impact that our after school programmes are having on their self-development”.
