We’ve written previously about intrepid father and daughter team, Colin and Bianca Cooper, and their 9 Peaks Tour for Qhubeka. Earlier this week, one of their sponsors, ER Consulting, where Bianca works as a doctor, handed over a donation of R37 724.00 raised through the tour – enough for 17 bicycles! Here’s what Bianca wrote about it at Heavy Metal Bikes:
Today we handed over the donation from 9 Peaks Tour’s sponsor ER Consulting Inc to Qhubeka, a total of R37724 (enough for 17 bicycles!). We are very fortunate to have had ER Consulting Inc supporting us as part of their ER Adventure initiative for their employees, not to mention allowing me to take 6 weeks of leave to complete our epic cycle/hike. Colin’s Buffalo bicycle, with over 30000km on the clock, was admired by all. We are looking forward to our next challenge, Ocean2Sani, starting this weekend. In the meantime, some photos from the handover.
