My father was diagnosed with cancer during training for my 1ste Epic in 2007. By the end of that year on the eve of 25 December 2007 the battle was lost. People with cancer and their families are close to my heart, especially innocent children. I want to give something back and therefore putting our bodies on the line by riding the Epic for CHOC (Childhood Cancer Found.).
Keep on “BELIEVING and HOPE” that’s our motto for the Epic. These children did not ask to be the way they are ...............special! Please help making the CHOC children lives better by making a donation. Funds raised are applied to directly benefit the children and their families, and also support those involved in the treatment of these most serious illness.

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation
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.
