Ullrich riding for charity in South Africa

By Susan Westemeyer

Jan Ullrich is back on his bike; riding for charity in South Africa on Sunday, March 11. He will give the opening shot to start the Cape Argus Pick ‘n Pay Cycle Tour and will ride 110 kilometres along with some 35,000 other participants.

Ullrich is participating in a new program called Race4Change, in which celebrities ride to raise money for various South African charities. Ullrich will be raising money for the Imibala Charity, which supports disadvantaged children in grade school, and the Starfish Foundation, which helps children orphaned by AIDS.

The public is encouraged to pledge money and sponsor Ullrich in order to support these charities. More information is available at the race4change.co.za website.
