100 km Cycle with Character

With the current wave of gender based violence on top of the standard crime, corruption and general lack of accountability in South Africa the Character Company remains one of the few organisations that are actively and intentionally investing in a better future by providing long-term MENtorship to young boys growing up with absent fathers or no positive male role models in their lives.  In a country where it seems to never be “enough”, we are saying ENOUGH!  When it comes to gender based violence and corruption and crime and destroying communities … we are saying “Not Us!”


This is however not something that we can do alone and we need your help.  On Sunday the 10th of November we are hosting a 100km with Character event in partnership with Planet Fitness Krugersdorp and Fruit & Veg City at the Cradlestone Mall from 07:30 am.  What we need from you is one of the following actions;

  1. Sign up as a team leader and take responsibility for one of the 40 stationary bikes on that day.  As team leader you will be responsible to put a team of up to 10 people together and make sure your bike clocks 100km on the day.  Your team must also raise a minimum of R 100.00 per kilometre – R 10,000.00 in total.

  2. If you are not keen to lead a team but want to take part in the event, please e-mail Gavin at 100.ch@racter.co.za so that he can let you know what teams have spaces open.

  3. Support an existing team by sponsoring someone with R100 p/km
