Rape is an everyday occurrence and we are blind to see it. Every 17 Seconds a Rape occurs. Women’s Day, 9 August 2018, will see the second annual Bikers Against Rape and Abuse event taking place in support of the Epic Foundation – www.epicfoundation.org.za. The event sees bikers from various clubs riding from Brakpan on the East Rand, via the South of Johannesburg, Midrand, and the R21, ending at Springs Rugby Club.
The 2017 event saw over 400 bikes participating in the awareness run and over 1000 people at the end destination. The MEC of Social Development commended and thank us for this initiative in 2017.
Please support us in making a difference in the fight against rape and abuse. Should you need further details, please feel free to contact me. Please support us in saying NO to RAPE and ABUSE.
This subject is being exploited in the media as it is happening more and we as residents in the 2ndhighest rated Rape country in the world behind America should be on high alert. Rape destroys family’s, relationships and lives. We need to open this and teach our society its unacceptable. Rape occurs not only to Women or daughters but to Men, Sons and baby’s.
Support our Run in support for a change in hearts. We can only do change if we create awareness that it’s happening too much. This is a serious problem for South-Africa. Jesus saves through Bikers. Ride to live. Live to Ride.
About the Epic Foundation
The Gauteng-based EPIC Foundation was founded by Alta McMaster at the beginning of 2013. Having experienced various traumas in her own life, Alta has a deep understanding of how lonely and helpless one can feel if no-one reaches out a helping hand.
Having experienced these situations in life encouraged her to provide that helping hand to others in the form of assisting with the empowerment of survivors of trauma. Alta has been managing projects for rape survivors and others in the Gauteng area since 2011, specifically the Comfort Pack Project. She has established a wide network for distributing these bags, ranging from small Victim Empowerment Centres that are linked to the police stations, to larger rape crisis/trauma centres. As the need for this project grew, the EPIC Foundation was established to serve the Gauteng community better.
