Blue Rock Village: Africa's first green village puts its weight behind Breast Cancer Awareness
Blue Rock Village is proud to announce its support and participation in the STBB 2Keep-a-Breast MTB Challenge.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. A woman can develop breast cancer at any time during her adult life and 1 in 10 South African women will. But as more women have mammograms and with increased awareness and education on the topic, rates of early detection are increasing.
The STBB 2Keep-a-Breast MTB Challenge has become the most popular mountain-biking event in the Western Cape, attracting more than 2 000 cyclist who love to ride the unique network of world class trails built into the Bottelary Hills conservancy which will also host, for the first time, a Twilight Trail Run this year. The aim of the event is to raise funds and all proceeds are donated to CANSA.
The event offers a spectacular post-event market with stalls, food, craft beer tent, wine tasting, music, and children's entertainment.
21 October 2016: STBB Twilight Trail Run – 12 km and 5 km
22 October 2016 : STBB 2Keep-a-Breast MTB Challenge- 60 km, 45 km, 30 km, 12 km, and 5 km
