MARASA BECOME GOLD SPONSORS OF BRUSSELS AIRLINES ‘BIKE FOR AFRICA’ EVENT
Paraa and Chobe Safari lodges, owned and operated by Marasa, the hospitality arm of the Madhvani Group in Uganda, have just signed up to become Gold Sponsors for Brussels Airlines’ ‘Bike For Africa’ charity cycling race planned for the period of 28th January to 04th February 2014.
The inaugural edition of this bi-annual cycling event took place in late 2011 in Rwanda and raised over 93.000 Euro in support of SOS Children Villages in Rwanda, Burundi and several other countries in the Brussels Airlines’ Africa network. The 2014 event is expected to exceed this figure substantially though event organizers presently speak of a target of 100.000 Euro, which will be donated to Uganda’s CoRSU charity, short for Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services in Uganda. The route will lead from the Source of the Nile in Jinja to the Murchisons Falls National Park, much of it using rural tracks, making the race a real challenge for riders and their support teams.
Marasa, the hospitality arm of the Madhvani Group, have come on board as Gold Sponsors and will accommodate the cyclists and their support teams at the Chobe Safari Lodge and the Paraa Safari Lodge, among other contributions for the race organization, while Brussels Airlines will uplift the bikes of competitors as well as fly them from Brussels to Entebbe and back.
