  1. Why fly when you can ride? This year we are riding the Cape Town Cycle Tour again in support of the Sunflower Fund. ...but.... with a BIG difference. We are riding from Johannesburg to Cape Town. 1412km in just eight days on a tandem bicycle. And then we ride the Cycle Tour, another 110km. We will be doing this with 8 other cyclists on the Sunflower Fund Tour of Light. We leave Joburg on Friday 26 February and arrive in Cape Town on Friday 4 March. Read more about our trip details here. Read more about the Sunflower Fund here. We would love your help please! First prize is that you register as a Stem Cell Donor with the Sunflower Fund. By doing so you make a commitment to donate your Stem Cells to someone who desparately needs them. You can save their life! It is free and does not hurt! Details on registering are here. Please let us know if you register as a donor. Alternately, you donate us some (lots) of money in support of our ride. All the money donated goes to the Sunflower Fund which is then used to create further awareness for the need for Stem Cell donors and to pay the costs of tissue typing the registered donors so that they can be matched to needy recipients. The actual costs of our trip will be paid for by ourselves, so all donations go to the Fund. We have a website with more details of the trip. We are also on Facebook and Twitter. Follow us for daily updates from the road. And just in case anyone asks, we are not riding back! Thank you so much for your support. Be Brave. Be Kind. Ida and Dave
  2. http://www.sunflowerfund.org.za/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/The-Sunflower-Fund-Logo.png The Sunflower Fund has a number of Charity Entries available for the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2016. We would like you to join us. The cost of the entry is R1780. Of this R1000 goes to the Sunflower Fund, the balance of R780 goes to buy the Charity Entry. Your will also need to purchase a Sunflower Fund cycle shirt. You can do that here. You are welcome to buy a cycle shirt even if you are not joining us. So what do you get for your money? A guaranteed entry to the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2016A ride for a very good cause (see below) with some great people.The opportunity to do something extremely good in the world So what does The Sunflower Fund do? The Sunflower Fund raises awareness of the need for Bone Marrow Donors with the aim to recruit new donors to the SA Bone Marrow Registry. The Registry current has just over 71 000 registered donors. Bone marrow is used in the treatment of Leukemia and a whole host of other serious blood and other diseases. Due to the 1:100 000 chance of finding a compatible donor, at least 100 000 donors are needed for a Registry to function effectively and in South Africa, the Registry should ideally have 400 000 donors representative of all ethnic groups. Ethnic groups do play a large part in establishing the perfect match so Donors from all backgrounds are very welcome. Some facts about becoming a Registered Donor: It is free!It does not hurt to get tested for your your tissue type match.It does not hurt to actually make a donation if you are a match for a patient (it is just like donating blood). The old process of drilling bones was sent to the history books long ago.While becoming a donor is free, it costs The Sunflower Fund R2000 to do the tissue typing on each new donor so we would welcome any contribution towards this. Your entry fee goes half way towards this. If you are interested, please email our ride coordinator Cecilia Hiemstra on Cecilia.Hiemstra@sasfin.com or PM myself.
