Mad Cow Disease!
Now That I’ve got your attention…
This year I have decided to take on a challenge completely out of the ordinary… I have decided to join a group of crazy enthusiastic cyclists and ride the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge on 21 November dressed as a cow! (No funny jokes)
The Cows 2010 Stampede is aiming to have more than 300 cyclists dressed in cow suits riding the cycle challenge in a quest to raise more than R4 million for CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation).
This is the third year that The Cows are riding and the project this year is the upgrade and renovation of the Paediatric Oncology Ward at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.
CHOC is the Childhood Cancer Foundation which plays a key role in providing care for children diagnosed with cancer across South Africa. It is a country wide organisation that provides the highest level of care required to treat childhood cancer in keeping with the latest developments world-wide. The paediatric oncology wards at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital provide hundreds of children from across South Africa with treatment for cancer. While some patients receive daily treatment through their outpatient ward, many remain in the wards for the duration of their treatment. The wards are in desperate need of upgrade to provide the level of care these children deserve.
So all you need to do is click here http://www.backabuddy.co.za/thecows-emmanuelcastis2010 and donate now to my noble cause!
I will not take no for an answer, and will bug you all week, and I will have a party soon to celebrate it (the race that is). Oh yes! Please forward this to anyone you think, will be able to help?
Later Pal, Peops and Folks
