Race Across Germany: Project 40 Hours. 1160km by bicycle, 8 - 9 July 2011 to raise funds for Childhood Cancer and Children's Surgical Care in the Eastern Cape, South Africa
HERE IS THE "RACE ACROSS GERMANY - PROJECT 40 HOURS" I will be a member of a team of cyclists that aim is to cover the 1160km from Flensburg, northern Germany to Garmisch-Patenkirchen in the Bavarian Alps, in 40 hours. This is done as a non-stop team ride.
I will participate and again, this is not only to be part of this enthusiastic team of riders, but also to raise funds for the treatment of cancer and surgical illness of children in the Eastern Cape, South Africa
Just as the Sabantwana EC2C CCC which took place in March (more info see the Sabantwana Project) the Fundraising is being done for the Childhood Cancer Association of South Africa - www.choc.org.za - who make a huge contribution toward the welfare of childhood cancer pations throughout South Africa
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.
