BRIC is a sub-branch of Habitat For Humanity. BRIC is a goup of students from Rustenburg, Westerford, Bishops, SACS and Herschel that works to raise money for people less fortunate than ourselves, in order to provide them with basic homes. They hold an event called Cyclathon once a year. This year it is at the V & A Waterfront Amphitheatre on the 3rd and 4th of February. It is an event that runs from 6pm on Friday to 7pm on Saturday over 25 hours, with students and public riding to keep 9 stationary bikes going for the full 25 hours.
Last year we raised R91 000 during the event which is a huge amount, but one that we are hoping to beat this year. The only way that we are able to raise the money is by having people there on the day to buy the raffle tickets (R20) which have awesome prizes. The raffle is drawn every hour on the hour. There is also great entertainment the whole time and an awesome vibe.
For the people that unfortunately can’t make it on the day, there is something that you can do too. “100’s and 1000’s” is where we get 100 businesses to give a thousand rand and 1000 families to give a hundred rand.
I hope to see you all there. Please tell everybody you know and come have a great day and support a great cause.”
