Our grandmothers group is holding a pledge event to support the inspiring transformation in sub-Saharan Africa, where community-based organizations, run by and for grandmothers, are working to turn the tide of HIV & AIDS.
We are asking you—our friends, family and colleagues—to support us to reach our fundraising goal.
To make a donation, please click on the 'Donate Now' button above the thermometer. It’s simple, fast and totally secure and will make such a difference to the grandmothers of Africa and the children in their care.
On a more personal note, I heard about this group in September 2017 and decided to join them on a short and easy ride from Victoria to Sidney and back (about 50 km). They blew me away! Such an inspiring group of women! I was hooked! I rode with them every Monday morning until it became too cold and rainy for me (until November, I know, what a wimp). The weather had improved by mid March so I hopped back on my bike. Training began mid April, starting with a 35 km ride and we have been steadily increasing the distance each time we go out. It's not all about the hills and building stamina. We always stop for coffee and conversation.
I hope you will consider making a donation and supporting the Victoria Grannies' 275 km cycle tour. We are a dedicated bunch of women, 55- 77 years of age, with a common desire to help our sister Grannies in Africa through this annual fundraiser.
With sincere thanks,
