Epic Fundraising Ride Joburg to Cape Town on Motorised Bicycle


Here at the Little Fighters Cancer Trust we (and our supporters) do some really wild and wonderful things to fundraise so that we can continue providing help to the most vulnerable of South Africa’s citizens; Children with Cancer and their Families.

This December will be no different, and while most individuals will be enjoying somewhat of a break over the Festive Season, one of our supporters, Jason Doyle, aka Crazy Nomad will be doing a Fundraising Ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town (approximately 1 400 kms) on a motorised bicycle to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.

The trip will take our riders on the back roads, starting at Melrose Arch, Johannesburg on 15 December 2018, and is the first of it’s kind.

Everyone is invited to witness their send off which promises to be quite spectacular. Hundreds of Motorcycles from various clubs around Gauteng will escort them out of Johannesburg.

If all goes according to plan, our intrepid riders should arrive in Cape Town on 30 December 2018.

I have been a self-employed businessman most of my life, owning and managing businesses such as Transport, Crane Truck Hire and a Liquor Store to name a few. Currently I work for an engineering company, running the production line.

Last year I was held up at gun point in the liquor store and we were very fortunate to walk out alive. Following this I had a stroke and that’s when I realized that a big change is needed.

I have always wanted to cycle through Africa, so I started planning this trip and came across motorized bicycles. This changed the way I do everything now. I have sold everything I own and only possess a few motorized bicycles. So early next year I will embark on a trip, once again to raise funds and awareness, through Africa and a large portion of Europe.

I decided to ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town in December so that I can test the bike and once again try to raise some funds for a good cause, and when looking on the internet and speaking to various people I know, I came across the Little Fighters Cancer Trust and the amazing work that they do for Children with Cancer and their Families and I knew that THIS is the cause that I want to support!

My good friend Tony Visser will be accompanying me to record and photograph this epic ride and capture all the special moments along the way.

We will be departing from Melrose Arch, Johannesburg on 15 December and plan to arrive in Cape Town on 30 December. You can keep updated on our ride via the Little Fighters Cancer Trust Facebook Page and Twitter account

If all goes according to plan, we should arrive in Cape Town on 30 December 2018. Once again we will be escorted by hundreds of motorcyclists into the city and we will be hosted by The Station on Bree for a celebration of the generosity of everyone that has donated funds to this great cause. All are welcome to see us off in Johannesburg and if you are in the Cape Town area when we arrive, please join us.`

Please support us in this epic ride by donating to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust so that they may long continue to do the great work they are doing for our childhood cancer-affected families.

About LFCT

CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit Childhood Cancer support 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
