Greg and Lucky opened up entries for this iconic race from Stepping Stones Hospice in Alberton, where they got to meet avid rider Jeff Hudson, who was responsible for raising R661 120.00 during last year's Cycle Challenge which was all donated to Stepping Stone Hospice so they could continue to do the great work that they do for terminally ill patients in their community.

Thanks to the Ride for a Purpose initiative, 116 charities registered in 2017 and raised R15.2 million for their causes. Furthermore, since its inception in 2011, the total raised to date is a staggering R82.1 million!
