Make a New Year’s resolution by joining #Miles4Hope for a good cause


JOBURG – The Sunflower Fund has encouraged individuals to make their next adventure one for charity.

If you looking to raise the bar for yourself in 2020, why not use your personal challenge to raise funds for the fight against blood diseases like leukaemia, sickle cell disease and aplastic anaemia to name a few,

Kim Webster, head of communications for The Sunflower Fund said they have encouraged individuals to make their next adventure one for charity. “All funds raised for The Sunflower Fund goes towards helping patients in need of a life-saving blood stem cell (bone marrow) transplant by funding the DNA tissue-typing test cost involved in recruiting blood stem cell donors as well as to grow our patient assistance programme to help patients who cannot afford the cost of the transplant.”

The Miles 4 Hope is where a participant can choose their sport activity (run, walk, swim, cycle), they would need to register and create a profile to start fundraising. Share the link to your fundraising campaign with friends, family and your extended network and ask them to support you by making a donation.

Every stride, pedal, swim or run could help get more patients to transplant by funding the recruitment of stem cell donors. Your next adventure could help save a life.

Webster concluded, “We invite you to door your physical and outdoor activity as a salute to patients who cannot enjoy the privilege of being active and enjoying the outdoors. ”
