Discovery Vitality supports Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka’s #1000GirlsOnBikes Campaign
Discovery Vitality’s latest initiative is aimed at empowering girls with bicycles and they need your help to make this a reality. From now until Sunday, 27 May 2018, you will get the opportunity to get active in order to give back and help support girls. As part of Vitality Active Rewards you will have an additional weekly reward: Vitality MoveToGive, where you will be able to opt to donate towards a bicycle for Qhubeka through the Team Dimension Data #1000GirlsOnBikes campaign. These bicycles will help girls travel safely to school and improve their access to healthcare.
