Convoy for Kids Massive Victory for Childhood Cancer Awareness


Chariots for childhood cancer

There is nothing to get the heart pumping like 39 Big Rigs from local leading trucking companies (and their beefcake drivers) doing a toy run in aid of Childhood Cancer Awareness and Little Fighters Cancer Trust!!

The public in Somerset West Main Road rushed out of the businesses and shops in their droves to see what all the hullabaloo was about, with the truckers hooting for Childhood Cancer Awareness and the public cheering them on their way. This was echoed throughout the rest of the trip through Strand & Gordon’s Bay too. WHAT an AMAZING atmosphere!!!

Some of the Little Fighters and their families are on the trucks – having the time of their lives and loving every moment of the Toy Run – collecting new toys for the LFCT Christmas Elf Project. They are absolutely overwhelmed that this is all for THEM!! Will do another post later when we have all the photos in…. 😀

 

More photos, as promised… 🙂

and some more…..

The toy run ended in a handover of toys collected to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust @ Mondeor Garden Restaurant on the N2

Thanks to SA Long-Distance Truckers, Western Cape Truckers, Stephan Leppan and all the other countless individuals involved for making this first CONVOY FOR KIDS ROCK!!!!!

See you all Next Year!!!!

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
