Come support the Climb4Hope SA event in Montagu to raise funds for the Sunflower Fund and Donkey & Animal Sanctuaries!
Enjoy a weekend away in this idyllic Breede River Valley setting – climbing and hiking, to raise funds for these very worthy causes.
Causes: Sunflower Fund and Donkey & Animal Sanctuaries
Where: Montagu, Western Cape
When: 8 and 9 November 2019
Venue: De Bos Guest Farm
The event will take place in Montagu over the weekend of the 8 and 9 November 2019, with the actual climbing and hiking day being on Saturday 9th.
All climbers and hikers must register online to receive an event T-shirt, Sunflower Fund Tope and Goodie Bag, together with their sponsorship forms (download), which they can use to raise personal/individual sponsorship.
Friday evening 8th November all participants and supporters will congregate at the De Bos Guest Farm in Montagu to settle in and be briefed on the structure of the event.
Saturday morning, hikers will set off on one of the hiking trails around town and teams of climbers (2 in a team) will go to one of the many rock crags in the Montagu area, armed with a climbing score sheet, and climb as many rock climbs as possible to raise funds for these very worthy causes.
Typically a relatively competent team can climb 15 to 20 routes in a day. And a strong hiker can walk between 15 and 20 km in a day
5 PM will be cut-off time and all climbers and hikers will return to De Bos Guest Farm and hand in their score sheet.
The evening will revolve around a braai and general social evening, during which there will be speeches from the organisers and sponsors, and there will also be a prize giving ceremony, where climbers will receive prizes from our sponsors for various reasons – most routes climbed, most kilometres hiked, best dressed, hardest route climbed, etc. And some spot prizes!
And of course at the end of the evening we will hand over a “cheque” for funds raised to a representative of the Sunflower Fund and the Donkey Sanctuaries.
