And you could be wearing the most coveted jersey on the course.

This is Team Zimbabwe's 9th year riding in the Elephant Rock.

Thank you to the many riders and sponsors who have joined us over the years

and made a real difference in the lives of more than 800 orphans and vulnerable children,

providing water, food, medical care, school fees – and hope.
