SEVEN 7 Drive for Kids with Cancer 2016


Last year,  3 intrepid travelers, Danie Botha, G.G van Rooyen and Jan van Deventer, traversed Seven countries in 7 days in a Kia Sorento kindly sponsored by KIA SOUTH AFRICA, to raise funds for Children with Cancer who are terminal and are not covered by Medical Aid.

You can see some wonderful photos and read more about last year’s trip HERE, and we will be updating as much as possible again this year so keep up with these wonderful guys right here or on Facebook.

The team of journalists under the leadership of Danie Botha, is once again heading out to traverse 7000 kilometres, across seven African countries in seven days to spread some cheer to children fighting cancer and to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.

kia-sportageThe 2016 SEVEN 7 Drive for Kids with Cancer will be undertaken in a brand new Kia Sportage, with Dueler All Terrain tyres sponsored by Bridgestone, leaving at 12.01am on  Friday 14th October.

The team will once again start and end in South Africa, driving through Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia and Botswana, and each day the team will visit a public cancer ward in one of seven countries to deliver love, joy, hope and toys to the Children with Cancer in the oncology wards.

It is hoped that as many businesses as possible will sponsor R1 per kilometer traveled, as a lot of 7 000 Rands are needed to help LFCT help our Little Fighter Families, and with Christmas around the corner, even more is needed.

All funds donated will go towards the Little Fighters Cancer Trust and  anyone can donate as much or as little as they can in a variety of ways:

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
