"Warrior500 is a decisive and proactive move to create a platform through which funds can be raised for the most vulnerable in the tourism chain: the local communities and those who are dependent on their support."
The effect that Covid-19 has had on the global travel industry is devastating. Africa and our own South Africa are no exception. Travel and tourism is a very resilient sector and we know our travellers will be back, but we don’t know when. Meanwhile hundreds and thousands of individuals in the tourism chain will lose their livelihoods with massive impacts on the local communities in this country.
Warrior500 is a unique, never-been-done-before challenge that will see two adventure-lovers, Simone Bishop and Grant Christie, traversing 500km on foot through some of South Africa’s most iconic landscapes within the Greater Kruger and along the Panorama Route. Their goal is to raise R 5 million to support communities in the area and to promote the region as a world-class immersive travel destination.
#Warrior500 has partnered with Laureus Sport for Good and Just Challenge to join their #MoveTheWorld Challenge to see how far registered teams can move by World Charity Day (05 September 2020) and to drive donations in order to help children and communities in need. 100% of all funds raised for #Warrior500, through the #MoveTheWorld Challenge, will go to our selected existing and sustainable community projects that have been drastically affected by COVD-19 and the lack of tourism to South Africa due to this global epidemic. 100% of all funds raised for #Warrior500, through the #MoveTheWorldChallenge, will be split equally between our eight selected beneficiaries to help community programmes drastically affected by COVID-19.
Donors to the Warrior500 Team campaign stand a chance to win some incredible luxury safari getaways.
