Sibebe Survivor 2013
IT’S TIME ONCE AGAIN FOR THE SIBEBE SURVIVOR!!
THE ROTARY CLUB OF MBABANE MBULUZI, SWAZILAND IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS YEAR THE EVENT IS BEING HELD ON SUNDAY 28TH JULY 2013.
Excitement amongst past participants is bubbling to the surface.....corporates who missed out on previous years are asking, ‘can we take part’ or “can we beat our rivals”.
This will be the 10th Anniversary of the Sibebe Survivor! Our participants have increased annually and last year we had 3,836 climbers that survived Sibebe. Last year’s event raised E 629,000 (just over six hundred and twenty nine thousand Emalangeni) which was used for various Rotary projects such as Tanks and running water to the Sibebe community, 3 classrooms for Mbuluzi primary school, kitchen and water supply for Nceka high school, library classroom and books for Magubuleni primary school, pit latrines for Lavumisa community, renovations, kitchen equipping and electrification of the SOS care point at Makholokholo, careers fair held at Royal Swazi, Old Folks lunch and Christmas parcels, interpreter for the Deaf society, continued support of the club foot section at the Mbabane government hospital, over a thousand dictionaries distributed to schools through the Ministry of education, eye testing and provision of glasses to women and other charitable projects.
The Rotary club of Mbabane Mbuluzi would like to extend to you the opportunity to take part in this great event and help raise money to benefit people & communities less privileged than ourselves.
Once again, this year the challenge will be to walk to the top of Sibebe, (admiring the wonderful views en route) and down again; water is provided to all walkers and we encourage all walkers to carry at least 1 litre of water with them. Prize giving and breakfast will be provided at the bottom next to the Mbuluzi Clinic.
In an effort to minimize the impact to the environment the Rotary Club will impose a participation limit of 4,500 walkers (please register early).
Registration for participation will take place on the 20th and 22nd of July 2013. We will also have late registration on the 27th July 2013.
The registration will take place at the Mountain Inn hotel between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm on all dates.
There will be NO registration permitted on the day of the event.
