Andy's Comrades Challenge

Andy's Comrades Challenge

Personal message

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.  

I am amazed at how simple it is to use and to make donations. It is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to donate. Your contribution to this page will benefit CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation).

I believe this is a realy good cause and your contribution will certainly spur me on and hopefully give me the strength to get through this tough uphill Comrades challenge.

Well my goal of completing my 7th Comrades was achieved, but more importantly a good number of people have donated generously to help us raise R 11 450.00 through this website. A number of people have made pledges and at this stage R 15 000.00 seems achievable. 

I finished my 7th Comrades in 10h37 on a day that was tough for most runners so I am most pleased.

Please donate generously to help us to realise the target.

Many thanks for your support. Have a wonderful day.

Andy Pons

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation Logo

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA is the only organisation in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. CHOC has a head office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, two branches, and 12 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. CHOC relies heavily on corporate sponsors, donations from groups or individuals wanting to make a difference in the lives of these little ones.

Their comprehensive support improves the welfare and quality of care of children with cancer and offers families a wide range of psychosocial services and practical support such as counselling, free accommodation, free transport and transport fund to ensure that no child abandons treatment due to the family not affording transport costs, food parcels as they recognise the financial difficulties families often face and parent to parent support groups. CHOC also plays a leading advocacy role and promotes early detection to save lives nationally.
