The Office National X-treme Chair Race is here! Businesses in Gauteng and surrounds can participate in this new fun event with a purpose.
This race is the first of its kind in Johannesburg, debuting at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on the 13 May 2017. Each organisation can register a team of 10 racers or more, then pimp, modify and accessorize a non-motorised office chair. Join us on race day for a 200 metre relay of speed, style and stealth!
Office National Africa is introducing this event to raise awareness on mobility devices available and assist the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA) in raising funds for wheelchairs and assistive devices. QASA strives to develop the full potential of quadriplegics and paraplegics nationwide.
Wihan Oosthuizen, MD of Office National Africa, says “The Office National X-treme Chair Race is important for awareness because it’s hard to believe that in this, day and age, there are parents who still walk kilometres carrying their child on their back to school. When they become too heavy, they are house bound because they don’t have a wheelchair and all efforts to get them educated are lost.”
He says Office National Africa was working with QASA to help identify quadriplegics and paraplegics who need a wheelchair.
“We are humbled to be beneficiaries of this event which enables us to extend our services of providing mobility aids, assistive devices and opportunities to our members. Events such as this give QASA an opportunity to highlight our projects and services and resource them appropriately. Great fun will be had on the day for a wonderful cause” says Ari Seirlis, CEO of QASA.
Office National along with FilpFile, Pentel and a host of other sponsors, will bring something more to the event than a single day’s worth of fun to participating businesses and spectators. Visit www.x-tremechairrace.co.za for more information on the Office National X-treme Chair Race.
