Children around the world fundraising for Qhubeka

You don’t have to be big to make a meaningful impact! These children, from Australia to Norway and the United States, are proving that as they raise funds to help Qhubeka change lives with bicycles.

Sophie used her Broadway-themed Bat Mitzvah to raise funds for 10 Qhubeka Bicycles after she heard about us through one of her parent’s work at Dimension Data Americas (based in the United States).Thanks, Sophie!

Jordan, who is 10 years old and lives in Australia, decided to ride 50km for Qhubeka in her PEAC course called Inspired to Action. She raised almost double her initial fundraising target. Thanks, Jordan!

Milan Elias and Marcus are two boys in Norway who enjoy cycling. Milan Elias is 12 and supports Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, especially his fellow Norwegian, Edvald Boasson Hagen. He wanted to raise funds for Qhubeka, and to fund a new bicycle for himself. He decided to sell his vintage Bianchi road bike. He set a fixed price, but then put the bicycle up for auction, with all funds above his price going to Qhubeka. The winning bid came from Marcus and his father – another father/son duo with an interest in cycling. Milan Elias raised 1500 Norwegian kroner for Qhubeka – the equivalent of around $180, which is enough to fund a bicycle for someone in a Qhubeka programme. Thanks, Milan Elias and Marcus!
