History

The staff initiative which has become known as the Nedbank Dream riders came into existence in 2007 when 8 riders from our BIS team assisted in raising funds by collecting sponsorships from friends and family per km of  947 Cycle Challenge they completed. We are a group of Nedbank Staff who are passionate about making a difference in the community and have selected to support the Reach for a Dream Johannesburg team in their fundraising needs. Nedbank runs the Local Hero and Team Challenge initiatives as part of their community projects which challenge us as staff to get out and help make the world we live in better.

Reach For A Dream inspires us and gives us hope and in turn we try to ensure they have sufficient funds to make the children and families dreams and dream day very special. We are all motivated by different things. Imagine doing the race with something more in the back of your mind -  when struggling to climb those hills, thinking about the little boy who get’s up every morning knowing he will spend the day fighting his way to a healthy future in hospital perhaps with Chemo, somehow that makes it a little bit easier and allows us to be grateful we are able to even try and climb that hill. Raising money to enable dreams, the race and having fun while still making a difference in the lives of these children.
