On Sunday 18 November 2018 Teljoy’s CEO, Rami Sassen, will take on the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge to give the gift of adventure to 18 year old Dylan Nathan, who was diagnosed with a rare syndrome called Kabuki at the age of 2 years old. Kabuki results in both mental and physical disabilities.
Partnering with Warrior On Wheels Foundation and the Smile Foundation for the second year, Rami aims to raise funds for both organisations while giving Dylan the joy of experiencing a cycling event of this nature, one that he would otherwise not be able to participate in.
“I decided to race with Dylan to give him an experience he has never had before and give him the gift of an incredible adventure” says Rami.
Vision of Warrior On Wheels Foundation
Warrior On Wheels Foundation, a registered NPO and PBO, aims to uplift and empower children with disabilities by providing adventure experiences, thereby changing perceptions of ability and bridging gaps between able-bodied and differently-abled communities. Through consulting with adventure providers and establishments within the tourism industry we are forging partnerships that promote accessibility for all abilities.
Fundraising and Sponsorship
Funds donated to Warrior On Wheels Foundation through this initiative will go towards preparation for the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2019. We aim to increase our fleet by 6 additional buggies, allowing us to enter 15 buggy teams in the 2019 event. As such we rely on the generosity of sponsors to cover the costs of the manufacture of the buggies, children’s entry fees, and our cycling jerseys for our team.
