Pink Fairy Multi-Sport, run by Mike Webb (aka the Pink Fairy) and his wife Klara, is once again on a fundraising drive to help various animal welfare organisations in the region.
The couple have been busy throughout the year despite the ongoing Covid-19 lockdown.
As previously reported, Webb took part in a virtual Buffs Marathon earlier this year (‘Pink Fairy raising funds for King SPCA’, February 25) which managed to raise R14,000 for the Qonce (then King William’s Town) SPCA.
He has also taken part in the Kei Mouth Family Fun Adventure relay, the Ironman 70.3, the Stutt MTB Challenge and the Crossways Hardware Adventure race, all to help raise awareness and money towards animal welfare.
The next event on the agenda is the annual K2K (Kwelera to Kei). As the name suggests, it is a race starting in Kwelera and finishing in Kei Mouth, covering roughly 60km.
It will be held on November 20.
“We are looking for MTB athletes of all shapes and sizes and fitness levels to Join us in the annual event and raise funds,” Webb said.
Participants will be required to wear the appropriate Pink Fairy attire, ‘pink up’ their bicycles and raise R1,000 each.
All funds raised will be donated to Hilltop Animal Outreach, the Hole in the Wall Horse Project, Pet Pals, Qonce SPCA and a dog feeding project run by Mdantsane resident Ben Rexana.
Anyone interested in taking part can contact Mike or Klara on WhatsApp at 084-597-8254 / 076-092-3287 respectively, or visit the Pink Fairy Multi-Sports Adventures Facebook page
