A Seasoned hotelier from Wellington in the Western Cape is making every kilometre count on his mountain bike by racing for StreetSmart to raise funds and extending a helping hand to the most vulnerable children in South Africa.
Angelo Casu, co-owner of the exclusive 5-star Grande Dédale Country House in Wellington, has been cycling with a purpose for StreetSmart since 2017 and have already covered nearly 8 000 km over seven mountain bike races this year, while single-handedly raising almost R50 000.
Earlier this month Casu completed the gruelling Munga MTB single-stage endurance race from Bloemfontein to Wellington, where he covered 1 050 km in 120 hours.
Elated about finishing the toughest mountain bike race in Africa, Casu is even more grateful to the people who supported him over all seven races and 8 000 km this year where he raised the much-needed funds for StreetSmart.
“Thank you to every donor who responded to my efforts. Please continue to donate, as the children continue to need your support. Instead of giving Christmas presents this year, rather support us by donating to StreetSmart,” Casu said.
In the meantime, the public is urged to keep Casu in the saddle and show their support for his fervour to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children by donating at: www.streetsmartsa.org.za/donate-to-streetsmart using “every km counts” as your reference.
