"Apart from the traditional horse race, we are going to offer helicopter displays and the public will also get an opportunity for rides. we will also bring our pilots especially female pilots to inspire people,"said Chikonzo

The organisation has set a target to raise more than $300 000 in the charity initiative this year.
