It Starts with Me for The Great Optimist Race

Personal message

PLEASE support  me, 15 year old cancer fighter, LUCA GROSSE [#LucaBringerOfLIGHT], and my family with our IT STARTS WITH ME Optimist dinghy in The Great Optimist Race, happening on 19 October 2019, and help us not only make it first across the finishing line, but also onto the Fundraising Leaderboard. Help us raise money for our charity as, with dad Stefan as skipper, we go head to head with 35 other LITTLE OPTIMISTS in the most unique charity event of the year - the The Great Optimist Race 2019. Every boat will be sailing to raise money for their chosen charity and the Little Optimist Trust. Every donation, no matter how big or small, will help kids survive and thrive.. 

More about our charity:
Our aim is to help raise R10 000 plus for one of Luca's favourite charity’s, The Sunflower Fund's PATIENT SUPPORT FUND. Being in the race to beat cancer ourselves with Luca in year three of his 4 year daily chemo protocol, we believe that we can help other patients and their families to join us to #WEareBeatingTheHellOutOfCANcer

The Great Optimist Race

The Great Optimist Race Logo

The  Great Optimist Race 2019  will be held during the Cape Town International Boat Show, on October 19th.  Between 35 and 40 Optimist Children’s dinghies will be raced by adults ( Celebrities, Medical Survivors & Captains of Industry)  not only for glory, but also to raise money and awareness for the charity of their choice . The Race will be a FANTASTIC and UNIQUE fundraising event , spreading Optimism and Hope across so many sectors. All the funds raised by each boat will be split between The Little Optimist Trust and the charity supported by that boat. 

The event will take place at the V & A Waterfront so come down to support your boat and see who walks away with the coveted trophy.

 Please donate and BackaBoat by selecting the boat and charity you would like to support.   Challenge your friends and corporates to match or better your donation, and help us to help other people.
