Thank you to all our runners who came out in support of the Vuleka Trust again this year. We are always so grateful and proud to have you running for us each year, and the new runners, please do join us again next year.
As OMTOM turned 50 this year we had 40 runners running the Half -Marathon and 6 runners for the Ultra - Marathon!!
With the support of RBPS and our runners we raised an incredible R70 010,30
This year for the Cape Town Cycle Tour we had numerous riders riding for us. GrassRoots Youth Academy was back with 9 riders, RBPS had Pete Woodard shave his head to raise money riding the CTCT, RBHS had 7 riders and last but not least 2 Old Boys also rode for us!!! What a team effort.
Thanks to these incredible individuals and corporate sponsors we managed to raise an incredible R133 000,00
Pete Woodard(teacher at RBPS) raised R13 568 for The RBPS Vuleka Trust. He promised to shave his head should he reach his target of R10 000,00. Thanks PETE!!!
Our Old Boys - Mark Lindenburg, David Wibberley and Andrew Hall
Some of the GrassRoots riders after the race, the Junior riders did so well!!!
Before and After of the RBHS riders, such great team spirit even though they were exhausted!
This April saw E97 Old Boys and the RBPS Parents Association host a Quiz Night at the Prep School with all the funds raised going directly to The RBPS Vuleka Trust.
It was such a fun night out, with many prizes to be won and lots of laughs had by all.
On our Vuleka Team we had three E76 Old Boys and am glad to report that they definitely still have their competitive edge and incredible acumen!
A very big Thank You to all the teams for purchasing tickets and supporting us. Then to the PA who set up the hall, arranged the food and ALL the wonderful prizes(there were many!!) Plus the raffle that raised an additional R3000,00 for the RBPS Vuleka Trust. And of course, who could forget the hilarious Quiz Masters, the evening would have not been the same without you.
We are so appreciative of the support and cannot wait for the next Quiz Night!
After another extremely successful event it has been incredible to see how our charity entries for OMTOM have grown over the years, with this year seeing 65 runners supporting us and raising awareness for the RBPS Vuleka Trust.
The money raised by this event alone will support 2 of our bursary boys for 1 year!
To all our runners who supported us and those who come back each year to run for us again and again, we value and appreciate all your hard work and hope to see you ALL back next year !!!
And lastly to our donors who very kindly sponsored runners, you know who you are, much gratitude to you too.
We couldn't have done it without you!!!
Last year we applied for and were granted 20 charity entries
for the Cape Town Cycle Tour.
Of the 20 entries we had 9 riders from Grassroots Youth Academy and 7 riders from Rondebosch Boys High School ride for us.
I am happy to report that ALL our riders crossed the finishing line!!!
These 16 young gentleman were sponsored by Corporates and Individuals alike - Without the support of Corporates and Individuals the dream of riding the CTCT would not have been a realization for some of these boys. We thank you for your constant support which continues to inspire us to provide a quality education to underprivileged youths and we look forward to continuing to empower the youth with your constant valued support.
