Qhubeka Foundation/Absa Auction for Good
About the Session

This initiative is part of Absa’s ongoing efforts to support communities and improve education outcomes. It will overlap with this year’s Absa Cape Epic, one of the toughest and most beautiful mountain bike stage races in the world. The 2021 edition of the race will see avid mountain bikers from around the globe cover 619 kilometres in distance and 15 250 metres of vertical ascent from the iconic slopes of Table Mountain National Park to the luxury of Val de Vie Estate outside Paarl. The proceeds of the Qhubeka Art session will go toward supporting Qhubeka Charity, an organisation that barters bicycles to better communities. Qhubeka is a Nguni word meaning ‘to carry on’, ‘to progress’, or ‘to move forward’, and is fittingly an official charity partner of the Absa Cape Epic.
