Global award-winning forex broker FXTM, in conjunction with the Nelson Mandela and Ride4Hope Foundations, hosted the Nelson Mandela Covid-19 Relief Virtual Challenge on Saturday, August 1, 2020. In the spirit of Nelson Mandela – uniting people through sports – this unique event brought together some of South Africa’s sporting heroes and famous faces to raise funds for those directly and indirectly impacted by the Covid-19 virus in South Africa.
FXTM Lead The Charge
As a brand that is committed to helping people find freedom among the financial markets, FXTM are a natural fit alongside the global icon of freedom, Nelson Mandela.
As sole title partners for the event, it was both a “privilege and an honour” for the company to make this platform possible. FXTM also supported the Velokhaya FXTM Cycle Team as volunteers in the Virtual Challenge.
Lex Webster, Chief Commercial Officer for Exinity Group, whose brands include FXTM, said:
“Uniting with the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Ride4Hope to present the Covid-19 Relief Virtual Challenge has been an absolute honour for FXTM.
As the great Mandela himself said, ‘What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead“.
With six leading sports teams competing, the event took the form of a 30km ride on Wattbikes via the ZWIFT cycling app, and was watched by thousands worldwide through online channels and satellite streams.
The athletes, including the Titans cricket team, rugby team Vodacom Bulls and FXTM’s own Velokhaya Cyclists, gave an impressive performance – and every single participant completed the challenge.
