Can you give your Full Effort on a bike? Join the SSH Charity Team

Not only has the 947 Cycle Challenge secured a new sponsor in Discovery and is now known as the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg, but Stepping Stone hospice’s charity cycling team will this year sport a brand-new look (and name) with Anatomic Sportswear and Ride Magazine coming on board as the team’s official partners. Get your entry in for the 2019 Discovery 947 Ride Joburg, choose Stepping Stone Hospice as your charity of choice, and enjoy the many benefits of being part of our Full Effort team.

Full Effort is an awareness and fundraising campaign in aid of
Stepping Stone Hospice.

The goal is to develop a positive social involvement and drive it within the cycling community. We will launch an awareness and fundraising initiative that will benefit a cause that delivers an important service to the community.

Stepping Stone Hospice is an independent, community-driven service. They provide specialist palliative care to people experiencing the impact of life-threatening illness.

Become part of a team who not only help create awareness, but also raises funds for Stepping Stone Hospice, an organization who gives their  FULL EFFORT in caring for people facing the challenges of a life-limiting illness. We are fortunate in that we can still live a healthy and active lifestyle and therefore are able to do our part to help keep the doors at Stepping Stone Hospice open.

A hospice patient should never be alone – let’s give it our FULL EFFORT!
