Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka has been shortlisted for the Beyond Sport Global Awards 2019 in the Best Corporate Campaign or Initiative in Sport for Good category, for their work with Qhubeka Charity.
Together with their partners, supporters, riders and staff they have funded over 27,000 bikes to Qhubeka. The funds raised by the #BicyclesChangeLives campaign are channelled into Qhubeka’s scholar mobility and mechanic training programmes.
