Report: Ride for Real Heroes (2nd Oct 2021)

Hero South Africa, in partnership with Hero Bryanston, was thrilled to be chosen to take part in an important Hero MotoCorp initiative called ‘Ride for Real Heroes’. This initiative is dedicated to supporting ‘Real Heroes’ who make a difference to the lives of people less fortunate than themselves, asking for nothing in return and who are often not recognised for the amazing work they do.

Hero MotoCorp in India select 100 cities annually to take part in the initiative and this was the first year that South Africa was chosen to take part, a rare honour for such a young business.

Hero South Africa chose 10 customers to ride 100km, starting at Hero Bryanston and travelling first to the Door Of Hope charity in the South of Johannesburg, which does such important work raising orphaned and abandoned babies, and then on to the Bru House near Krugersdorp for an early brunch.

Unfortunately, the weather was not great but Mikael Cloete, National Sales Manager for Hero South Africa, had nothing but praise for the participants: “I really appreciate the fact that customers were prepared to ride through hail and rain to support the cause and honour the real heroes,” he said.

“Hero MotorCorp are well known for their initiatives which are aimed at giving back to the community. These are values that align perfectly with Hero South Africa. The initiative will be an annual event and we shall commit to donating to various charities and organisations and thank them for the selfless work performed.”
