Fund Raising

Posted by ewan on Wednesday, March 28, 2012,
Good day all, I just ordered the armbands and lapel pins for the fund raising campaign related to the drive. These pins and bands will be handed out at a fly-inn at the Parys Airfield on the 14th of April 2012. The people make donations towards the drive and we give them something in return as well as a small flier giving information about the drive as well as the web site address, the face book page and twitter information.

 As there will be 17 recreational vehicles used during this drive, 5 Snow mobiles, 5 Jet Skis and 7 Motorcycles/CanAm Roadsters depended on the sponsorships, we will also hope to get permission to have these vehicles as prizes at the end of the drive with all their sponsorship logos and markings.

Posted by ewan on Sunday, March 18, 2012,
The small town of Parys in the Free State province of South Africa held their annual Relay for life. This relay is held to celebrate those that survived cancer through early detection and treatment, and remembered tose that lost their battle with some type of cancer. 
As usual, it was a memorable evening and because it hit so much closer to home for me this time around, this relay had greater meaning for me personally. I know that next year, there will be a candle burning around the course for...

What to do?

Posted by ewan on Friday, March 2, 2012,
When you suspect that there is something wrong or you found a lump that is growing, immediately consult your medical practitioner to make sure that it is nothing. If he/she advise a biopsy, go immediately. This action can save your life in the long run. 
Early detection is key to fighting cancer. My father felt that something was wrong with his body, but like most men, ignored the symptoms. When the pain and discomfort became to severe, he eventually went to the doctor and was diagnosed with p...

About Me


I am the organizer of the Pole2poleandback drive for the awareness of cancer and to raise funds for two of our indispensable NGO's that rely almost solely on donations. The reason for the drive is my mission to make more aware of cancer and that early detection can lead to effective treatment.
