Strate’s supports Reach for a Dream by riding for a cause
At Strate, we support the country’s transformation agenda by doing good in our communities. Through our “Do Good” initiative, our employees raise funds for non-profit organisations (NPOs) and Strate matches a percentage of the donations.
In our latest “Do Good” initiative, Strate is supporting Chairman Nigel Payne and his brother Adrian Payne, who recently completed the summer Freedom Challenge, a race across Africa, to raise funds for the Reach for a Dream Foundation.
Under the theme “Ride For A Cause”, Nigel and Adrian completed the Double Freedom Challenge – both the winter and summer challenge. This amounted to 38 days, 4 300km of extreme offroad riding with 6 600m of climbing, often carrying their bikes over South Africa’s highest mountains.
The brothers are raising money for Reach for a Dream, a South African NPO, to build a Dream Room at a community-based medical facility in Gauteng. This will be a place of fun, play, family time and dreams of hope for children undergoing life-saving treatments.

The Payne brothers took 17 days to complete the Summer Race across South Africa 2022 Freedom Challenge in October 2022. They were placed second in the double-up challenge.
