Seven7 DRIVE for Kids with Cancer: Update
With only 5 days to go, the excitement is mounting at both Little Fighters Cancer Trust and SEVEN 7 Drive for Kids with Cancer as our 3 intrepid travellers, Danie Botha, G.G van Rooyen and Jan van Deventer enter the final stages of the preparations to begin their Seven countries in 7 days trip to raise funds for Children with Cancer who are terminal and are not covered by Medical Aid. They will also visit a child with Cancer in hospital in each of the countries.
Their full SEVEN DAY itinerary can be found HERE
The Kia Sorento they will be driving, kindly sponsored by KIA SOUTH AFRICA, has been outfitted with all the extras they need to make this journey:
- A new set of Bridgestone Dueler All-terrain tyres;
- Lightforce Venom 50W HID lights;
- The entry-level Kia’s steering wheel with controls for the (Bluetooth) sound system/telephone and on-board computer (thanks to SAC for their contribution);
- Roof-rack courtesy of Weca Off-road Centre in Centurion;
The KIA is currently at Graffiti in Kyalami having the final touches added, after which it should look something like THIS
On the 18th June, the Team joined Katrin from Little Fighters Cancer Trust, during one of her regular visits to hand out some gifts, on a visit to the Paediatric Oncology Ward at Steve Biko Hospital, where they will also be ending off their SEVEN 7 Drive.
Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to once again thank Danie, G.G and Jan, as well as all of their sponsors, for everything they are doing to raise Funds and Awareness for Childhood Cancer, and wishes the Team Safe Travels.
ALL operational costs for this epic adventure are sponsored in full, ensuring that 100% of funds donated go directly to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.
