McCormack was selected as a member of Breitling’s Triathlon Squad alongside fellow world champions Jan Frodeno and Daniela Ryf. Together with Breitling CEO Georges Kern, they took part in the Coronation Double Century, a grueling endurance bicycle race, in support of a South African charity that – fittingly – provides bicycles to people in communities with limited transportation options.
Qhubeka is a South African charity that moves people forward with bicycles – improving their access to schools, health-care centers, and places of work. These bikes provide instant change to people’s lives in Africa, cutting down journeys to school for kids that can take up to 2 hours each way, facilitating being able to find work in other villages, and keeping kids in school.
Breitling aims to generate enough funding at the Coronation Double Century to donate 500 bicycles to Qhubeka annually.
