In December, myself and three friends will take on the mozambican ocean in a challenge and experience of a lifetime. We will be paddling kayaks approximately 350km down the coastline from Chidenguele to Ponta de our over two week period.
As much as this is a special challenge and brilliant experience for us, we wanted to make it a meaningful experience too. For this reason we have decided to take on this challenge in the name of CHOC as this is a charity that is very close to my heart and a cause I have fully supported since my good friend Justin Bessler(JB) passed away after bravely battling cancer for several months.
It is therefore in the memory of JB and in support of CHOC that do brilliant work in fighting against cancer that I kindly ask for any donations that you are willling to give.
Thank you so much

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.
