The 24 Hour Challenge!!


The Race Across Mpumalanga

 5th October 2015!!

Faf is at it again!!

In his quest to raise Awareness around Childhood Cancer and raise much-needed funding for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust, Francois ‘Faf’ Naude will be undertaking the mammoth task of racing across the province of Mpumalanga, South Africa in under 24 hours on a bicycle on 5 October.

Francois does various races and endurance trials etc under the auspices of United Challenge, the charity that he started in July 2015, a community platform where individuals or organisations can unite to bring about change in lives through charity.

official route of the 24 Hour Challenge on 5th October 2015

The 24 Hour Challenge – The Race Across Mpumalanga, in association with the Little Fighters Cancer Trust,  will start just outside Hoedspruit at 14H00 on Monday 5th October, and Francois will attempt to cover the 440.49km within 24 hours, taking several 15 minute breaks along the way.



The Little Fighters Cancer Trust is thrilled that KIA South Africa has once again come on board as the official vehicle sponsor for this challenge, and the KIA social media specialist Randy Robertson, will be updating us as often as possible in real-time throughout the challenge with information about the ride and as many photos as possible too.

Francois will also be accompanied by two support crew who will ensure that he has fresh clothes, remains well-hydrated, is supplied with high-energy quick meals along the way, and otherwise look after his general safety and well-being.

Watch this page for more information on this epic challenge, expanded route details, where you can see him along the route to give him some encouragement, how to support him with donations, and more…

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
