About the Tour’s charity Partner, Headway

Headway Gauteng is a non-profit organisation dedicated to offering various support programs to adult survivors of brain injury (BI) and their families.

The vast majority of their injured members have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a result of a motor vehicle accident, sporting (cycling) accident or assault. They also assist survivors of acquired brain injuries such as stroke. All of the charities members have led a full life up until the brain injury, which has caused permanent changes to physical, cognitive, emotional and behavioral processes.

Many of their members cannot afford the costly therapy that comes with sustaining the trauma that they have experienced.

Headway is a unique organisation that provides a stigma-free environment where persons with brain injury, as well their families, can gain access to therapy, acceptance, comfort and emotional security, in order to become confident and competent to the fullest extent of their abilities. The support of our donors is paramount to achieving this.
