Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka were announced as winners at the prestigious Beyond Sport Global Awards 2019 in New York on Thursday as the Best Corporate Campaign or Initiative in the Sport for Good category. This is for our work with the Qhubeka Charity.
The award recognises organisations that are using their reach, resources and influence to effect change. Together with our partners, supporters, riders and staff we have funded over 27 000 bikes to Qhubeka. These funds are channelled into Qhubeka’s scholar mobility and mechanic training programmes, which help children to access education, help support skills development and job creation in South Africa.
This year’s Beyond Sport Global Awards 2019 shortlist represented 37 countries, across six continents and more than 40 sports, all dedicated to creating positive social impact in communities around the world through sport to help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“We will use this platform to continue to spread the ethos of our team, and change lives with bicycles through the Qhubeka Charity. We’d also like to extend our gratitude to Beyond Sport for leveraging sport to help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”
