HL’s parent company, Associated Media Publishing, is excited to support celebrity Ivan Zimmermann as he participates in the ambitious 2016 Silk Route cycle tour from Beijing to Istanbul to raise money for university education in South Africa.
His marathon journey started on 15 May and will continue until 5 October – covering 12280km of gruelling terrain. Since Zimmerman will be covering around 125km per day, he is asking his supporters each to pledge R125 to the #Pledge125 project.
The challenge will test Zimmerman to the limit: temperatures are expected to range from -10 to 45C, and the elevation will range from zero to 4500m above sea level.
In praise of this incredible project, SAICA and LIPCO are sending one lucky Associated Media Publishing reader – along with a partner – on a trip to the finish line in Istanbul. Everyone who pledges stands a chance to win this trip to meet up with Zimmermann on 5 October, valued at R60 000.
