Crazy Nomad 🚴 Ride for Cancer Kids 🚵‍♂️


Crazy Nomad Jason Doyle and his good friend Tony Visser started their epic Fundraising Ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town (approximately 1 400 kms) on motorised bicycles to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust, last Saturday, 15 December.

The guys left from Melrose Arch on Saturday and have been making good time each day despite having to keep off the major highways due to their motorised bicycles only having 60cc engines (which means LOTS of pedaling) and dealing with some really bad gravel roads.

Fortunately they are quite flexible re their planned route and made some adjustments so that the road on Monday was not as bad as Sunday’s road….

The guys say that they are having great fun on the way, meeting some really interesting and interested folks and all while fundraising for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust to raise funds for Children with Cancer and their Families.

 

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

Roughly planned route for leaving on 15 December and arriving on 30 December.

Day 1: Melrose Arch to Vaal 140 km

Day 2: Vaal to Hennenman 189 km

Day 3: Hennenman to Bloemfontein 162-185 km

Day 4: Bloemfontein to Philippolis 168 km

Day 5: Philippolis to Neupoort 114 km

Day 6: Neupoort to Richmond 124 km

Day 7/8: Richmond to Beaufort West 205 km over two days

Day 9: Beaufort West to Merweville 130 km

Day 10: Merweville to Sutherland 104 km

Day 11/12: Sutherland to Ceres 3 routes 196-249 km over 2 days

Jason sent us a short video of him and Tony riding through the farmlands in the Free State on Monday – as you can see, they are going at quite a good pace and say that they are having GREAT fun!!

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
