Rotary Tour Deux Déserts (Tour of Two Deserts)– 18 to 26 April – Krugersdorp (RSA) to Lüderitz
The Rotary Club of Lüderitz is preparing to welcome participants of the first ever Rotary Tour Deux Déserts – an ultra-clycle tour that will start at the Sterkfontein Caves in Krugersdorp and finish in Lüderitz. The tour kicks of on 18th of April and ends at the coastal town on April 26.
Cyclists are expected to arrive as from around 12h00 in Luderitz and Lüderitz Rotary club members would like to welcome them at the Lüderitz Stadium.
The main aim of the tour is to raise funds for the “One School, One Sports Field” project.
This project will provide previously disadvantaged schools with the means to keep the children off the streets and the facility to teach them a sport. As part of this project, children will also be taught about their environment and conservation by supporting Birdlife South Africa projects. Due to major problems with drug taking and everything else that goes with it, The Rotary Club of Johannesburg New Dawn are actively supporting the “Anti-drug* as well as *HIV/AIDS* awareness campaigns. All funds raised from this ultra-cycle tour are fully audited.
The 2014 tour will be known as the “Rotary Tour Deux Déserts” (Tour of two deserts) and a documentary of between 90 — 120 minutes will be produced by *Noisy Pictures Productions*. The Director, Gert van Niekerk, is very well known in the Egoli and Binneland TV circles.
