About the Campaign
Victoria Grandmothers for Africa 275 km Cycle Tour Page
On September 6 - 8 we will once again be cycling 275 km from Campbell River to Victoria 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. In the midst of the AIDS pandemic the grandmothers of Africa are an inspiration. They are recognized as community experts and vital agents of change in their communities. With the impact of Cyclone Idai being felt in Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe the need for support is even greater.
The cyclists participating in this tour are all women over fifty five and are riding in support of our grandmother sisters in Africa. During the ride we receive much encouragement and sustenance from other Vancouver Island grandmother groups. Over the last 12 years the 275 km and 50 km Cycle Tours have raised more than $600,000 for the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign. We are asking you—our friends, family and colleagues—to support us to reach our fundraising goal for this year.
Together we can turn the tide!
