Team St David’s was launched in 2018 as a banner for the St David’s community to gather under, to take part in group events in support of the St David’s Marist Foundation.
In November 2018 41 St David’s riders (parents, boys, staff, past parents, old boys, and family and friends) cycled the 947 Cycle Challenge as a St David’s Marist Foundation charity team “Ride for a Purpose” entry, and raised just over R50 000. In November 2019 29 Team St David’s “Inanda Pandas” took part in the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg ride and raised a further R50 000 for the St David’s Marist Foundation Bursary Fund.
In June 2020 St David’s staff launched a Champagnat Day run, which was taken forward on a monthly basis for the whole St David's community for the remainder of 2020 (first weekend of each month) under the Team St David’s banner.
