Midgard desert cycling marathon
On 03 May 2014, approximately 20 adults and 20 children will start cycling from Buitepos to Swakopmund as part of a fund-raising effort by Huis Maerua and Welwitschia schools. The group will cycle in relays from 03 May to 10 May, when they envisage their arrival in Swakopmund.
Jack Enright, Manager of Huis Maerua, advised that they would embark on this “Trans Kalahari Cycle Tour for Angels” in an effort to raise funds for the children’s home in order to address a budget deficit of over N$650,000. O&L Leisure – the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group of Companies’ leisure portfolio – has sponsored the cyclists with one night accommodation at its Midgard Country Estate. “We are looking forward to our adventure, and we would like to thank our generous supporters and sponsors such as O&L Leisure who will accommodate us for one night at the Midgard Country Estate. Without this kind of support it would not be possible.”
Bruce Hutchison, Managing Director of O&L Leisure, expressed his delight at being part of this noble cause. “I wish you all the best in achieving your goal through this fund-raising initiative. At the same time I would like to encourage all Namibians and other corporations to support this worthy cause.”
