It must be devastating for a parent to discover their child has a life-threatening disease and even more so should the child require medication or surgery that the parents cannot afford.
Although it may be a cliche, children are the future and it is our responsibility to ensure that no child suffers unnecessarily, and especially not because of its parent’s financial situation.
Ride for a Child is a worldwide initiative by motorcyclists (and cyclists in some parts) to raise funds for such children and motorcyclists from the Eastern Cape are currently almost at the end of their 5,670km ride around the Eastern Cape, and will be in Kenton/Bushmans and in Port Alfred this Saturday morning, arriving at approximately 9.30am.
After a brief stop at Kenton and Bushmans they will be met by an escort of Sky Alarms vehicles, the Fire Brigade, Ndlambe Traffic Department and, of course, a contingent of bikers from the Ulysses Motorcycle Association.
The procession with turn left from the R72 at Main Street, then along Main and right unto Causeway. Then straight across the robot and turning left along Little Beach Road up to the West Beach Carpark and Guido’s where they will take a little rest and enjoy a cooldrink donated by Sky Alarms.
They are asking for the town to join them and to reach deep into their pockets to assist this worthy cause. Businesses and individuals are asked to give whatever they can afford to make sure our children and the country has a future.
