Personal message

Hi and thanks for dropping in.

The Sabantwana Cycle Challenge is over - the Ride to Cape Town and the Argus were amazing.  Hard work at times but always good.

The Lucky Draw Competition is now closed and congrats to the winners.  The Cycle Kit and MOBii have found their new owners.

The funds raised have been put to good use and some of the equipment that is needed has been ordered and is on it's way.  It's a good step forward but we have some way to go - so please watch this space for Race Across Germany - Project 40.  Another attempt by Sabantwana to cycle for charity!

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.
