HESC at the Telkom 94.7 Cycle Challenge 2016

On Sunday, 20th November 2016 the annual Telkom 94.7 Cycle Challenge was held in Johannesburg and a group of cyclists participated on behalf of HESC to raise funds. This is in fact the second year that we’ve had cyclists riding to raise funds for HESC. Judging from the pictures, it seems everyone had a good time.

We’d like to thank everyone who participated and rode for the HESC animals. A whopping R20 000 was raised for the centre!

Below is a pictorial of activities during the day…
