Former South African president and civil rights advocate Nelson Mandela dedicated his life to fighting for equality. Nelson Mandela International Day is celebrated each year on his birthday to honor the idea that every individual has the power to transform the world, and to encourage people around the globe to help those in need.
This year, Zwift is raising awareness and funds for the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s Each 1 Feed 1 Initiative which strives to combat poverty throughout South Africa and around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nelson Mandela spent 67 years of his life fighting for social justice, so we’ll be riding for 67 minutes as a global community to raise awareness and funds for the #Each1Feed1 campaign. Three 67-minute group rides are scheduled, and Zwifters are encouraged to participate in one or more of the events:
- July 18 7am SAST/6am BST/July 17 10pm PDT – Douce France
- July 18 12pm SAST/11am BST/6am EDT – R.G.V.
- July 18 5pm SAST/4pm BST/8am PDT – Casse-Pattes
