The Pebbles Project
Two intrepid cyclists, Aubrey Symington (HR Business Partner at Woolworths) and Tanya Rabie (Head of NPD and Process Technology at in2food) are cycling the Cape Epic 2013 to raise funds and awareness for The Pebbles Project.
Aubrey and Tanya are entering as a mixed team and their race number will be 317. The entry ticket has been given by Woolworths as the sponsors of the food and refreshment stations and in2food are paying the entry fee, thereby enabling the riders to raise as much as they can for charity.

A number of other companies are also coming on board, including Nestle, BRM Brands, Elgin Free Range Chickens, Excellent Meat, Mainstream Refrigeration cc and Kees Beyers Chocolates.

Aubrey and Tanya have been training hard since last October and fundraising hard also, approaching businesses to commit to donating to Pebbles, their goal being to reach a total of R50,000. Pebbles is a registered non-profit organisation that supports the education and upliftment of wine farm workers children and their communities and will use all the funds raised through the Cape Epic to support ECD (Early Childhood Development) and ASC (After-School Club) programmes for over 700 children.

If you would like to get involved to help Aubrey and Tanya raise funds for Pebbles, please visit the Cape Epic website for details of the race www.cape-epic.com or visit the Pebbles website to donate directly online www.pebblesproject.co.za

The Pebbles team would like to wish Aubrey and Tanya huge success in the race and to say a big thank you for supporting our work.
