team zimbabwe


The time to join team zimbabwe is now. let's roll!

We don't know when the coronavirus siege will end. Elephant Rock has been tentatively rescheduled for October 10 and 11. But who knows if it will happen?


What we do know is that 800 orphans and vulnerable children in Zimbabwe need our help desperately – right now.


Setting up your fundraising page is easy and it's free.


Now anybody can raise funds, whether you're an avid cyclist or not.


•  You don't have to be registered with Elephant Rock

•  You don't have to be in peak physical condition.

•  You don't even have to own a bicycle.


It doesn't matter what you do to earn donations.


•  You can ride any time, but please start your fundraising now.

•  You can wait and ride Elephant Rock in October, if it happens, but please start your 
    fundraising now.

•  You can ride anywhere – it doesn't even have to be in Colorado!

•  You can ride alone or with friends or church group (socially distant, of course).

•  You can ride a virtual course on your stationary bike.

•  You can skip the riding altogether, and do whatever you're good at.

•  Tap dance.

•  Sing in the shower


Whatever you do, please click this link, set up your fundraising page, email a link to everyone you know, and sit back and watch the donations roll in. It's a very good feeling.

800 kids need your help now.


As you know, Team Zimbabwe rides the Elephant Rock every year to help bring hope to about 800 orphans and vulnerable children at Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care in rural Zimbabwe. These children depend on us for daily meals, medical support, school fees and much, much more.

 

COVID-19 has changed a lot of things. But one thing it hasn't changed is that these children need our help. And it hasn't changed our resolve to help them.


You can help, too. Just click this link to start raising funds, or simply to donate.

*If you've already registered for Elephant Rock and want to know what options are available to you, please click here. You will need to make a decision by June 5th as to which option you choose.


**If you still want to register to ride with Team Zimbabwe in October (if it happens), scroll down to "Registration Instructions" below.

Because the coronavirus has impacted this year's fundraising so severely, we regret to inform you that there will be no Team Zimbabwe Jersey for 2020. Which is too bad, because it was going to be SENSATIONAL!  (See sneak preview at right.) Well, all the more reason to ride with us in 2021.


BUT we do have some jersey inventory from previous years. And you can help us meet this year's fundraising goal by buying one (or two)! If you missed a year, or would like to give one as a gift, just click here to email Jackie. Let her know which years and what sizes you're looking for, and she'll see if we have it in stock.


To see the Team Zimbabwe jerseys for every year since 2010, click here.

The price per jersey is $75.

registration instructions

We recommend you wait to register. But if Elephant Rock does happen in October and you still want to register, here's what to do.


When you click "REGISTER NOW" at the bottom of this section, you'll be taken to the Elephant Rock events.com registration page. The online registration form is pretty self explanatory, but you'll find it much easier if you read and follow the instructions below. If you have any questions, please contact Jackie at 720-289-2090 or at rideteamzim@gmail.com.


First, on the events.com registration page, scroll down and select the length of the course you wish to ride. Click the plus sign once to indicate you're registering for one person – yourself. Click again if you're also registering for someone else. Note that for each length of ride, there is a line to register an adult, and a separate line to register a person 18 or under – and that person can be registered for free.


Once you have selected your course, scroll to the bottom and click "register now." That will take you to the next page entitled "Buyer Information."


"Buyer Information" Section


At the top of this page, you should see "Team Zimbabwe 2020." Please note you do NOT have to log in, just continue by filling in your Buyer Information. Be sure to fill in your date of birth, gender, phone, address, and emergency contact info.


"Event Questions" Section


Please note that all these questions are optional. You can skip this if you like.


"Initial to Agree" Section


Here, you will need to type your initials in several boxes to indicate you understand all the important issues and to sign the waiver. Then you'll have to check the box to acknowledge you have read and agree to the waiver.


"Attendee Items" Section


Here's where you will indicate what size Elephant Rock T-Shirt you would like, and what you would like for lunch. Both of these items are included in the price of your registration at no extra charge.


"Attendee Protection" Section


Here you are offered insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances that could prevent you from attending the event. You must accept of decline this insurance before moving on.


"Other Stuff" Section


Here, you'll have opportunities to purchase a lot of other Elephant Rock merchandise, starting with this year's Elephant Rock jersey. Note this is NOT the Team Zimbabwe jersey. You'll be able to secure your Team Zimbabwe jersey when you set up your Team Zimbabwe fundraising page. You are not required to purchase any of these items. If you do, the item will be added to your cart and you will pay for it at checkout.


"Invite Your Friends Now!" Section


This allows you to share all this with a friend through email. Again, this is optional, you can skip it if you want.


"Order Summary" Section


Here's your chance to make sure that everything you selected is duly noted. Check it carefully, then click to submit your order.


When you have submitted your order, you will receive a confirmation email from Elephant Rock, and Team Zimbabwe will be notified of your registration.


What's Next?


Expect an email from Team Zimbabwe soon thereafter. We'll provide a link and explain how to set up your fundraising page. You'll have to raise a minimum of $100 to ride with the team, and a minimum of $225 if you want to ride with this year's all new, totally amazing Team Zimbabwe jersey. Believe it, there will be nothing else like it on the ride.


After you've reached your fundraising minimum, we hope you will go on to raise a LOT more! Each dollar grows more and more important as the situation becomes more desperate in Zimbabwe. Thank you in advance for your much needed help.


You will need to pick up your registration packet at the Douglas County Event Center on Saturday, June 6 or Sunday, June 7 before the ride. In your packet will be your bike number, which must be affixed to your bike, your wristband, your Team Zimbabwe jersey if you raise at least $225, and any merchandise you ordered in the registration process.
