Purple Bandage ( NPO ) hosted its first ever kids cycle challenge on the 13th September 2014 at the Roshnee Sports Grounds. It was also the first cycle challenge ever hosted in Roshnee. Hundereds of kids from the early age of one up to twelve years participated in this innaugural event. All proceeds were channelled back to back into three projects in Roshnee, including, education (Al-Munira School for the Disabled & VADMA) , and medical and security organisations . Enthusiastic kids turned out in their prams, tricycles, bicycles and scooters. The short course began at the Sports Grounds, through a section of Tagore Drive and a loop of varying distances on Iqbal drive for the different age groups. Enthusiastic patterns braved the raring scootes and bike to run alonside their kids.
Purple bandage created a hype in Roshnee. It was great seeing kids leave their playsations and cartoons to ride out in the streets. An emphasis was place on safety, with the motto... "no helnmet, no ride" being key... Additionally a hub was creates around the start with a candy stall and Photo Booth . A special thanks to the schools that helped us with ticket sales... .. Dadaville Gardens Pre School, Roshnee Islamic School, Roshnee Pre school, Kids and Mums and Roshnee Primary School. Also to Maylene & her team for photo booth.
