A staple in the local sports calendar the event returns on 20th October and will attract more than 750 participants who can chose to take part in either the 100km, 65km or 30km race.
All funds collected from the race will be donated to two NGOs: Association Pour Les Handicapés De Malherbes and SAFIRE. Both organistations are integral to supporting underprivileged youths and disabled individuals on the island.
Shahed Ahmed Hoolash, Managing Director at Vistra (Mauritius) has the following view on the race:
“Once again, Vistra is proud to be the host of the Mauritius 100km Cycle Tour. Social responsibility has always been part and parcel of our identity as a corporate citizen. We consider it our duty to do what we can to help individuals integrate society and give them the opportunity to excel at what they set out to achieve. Sports is something that is promoted a lot within the Vistra itself and it was only natural to us to use it as a medium to connect with so many people and make a change in the life of others.”

Information on the organisations:
Active since 2006, SAFIRE has focused its attention on children who have been at a social or economic disadvantage throughout their lives, and has tried to put in a framework that would allow them to properly integrate society and become functional, independent individuals later on.
APLHDM has made it its mission to cater for the needs of children with intellectual impairments, cerebral palsy and related conditions. In 2007, the association opened a school, and a shelter in 2013, to further care for the all-rounded development of the children.
