The Cows go wild for Choc

Go! & Express - - Go! Classifieds - QHAMANI LINGANI

THE Cows from around the coun­try united in rais­ing funds for Choc (Child­hood Can­cer Foun­da­tion of South Africa) by walk­ing through the Wild Coast from Gonu­bie.

The Cows are a group of peo­ple who raise funds Choc for chil­dren and fam­i­lies af­fected by can­cer.

All funds raised are used for the Choc pro­jects as agreed for the year.

The two-day run, walk or me­an­der along the Wild Coast started at the Gonu­bie River mouth and on­ward along the coast to Craw­ford’s Beach Lodge in Chintsa, where par­tic­i­pants rested their weary legs on Fri­day night. Then on Satur­day, bright and early, they moved from Chintsa to their fi­nal des­ti­na­tion on the cliffs high above Mor­gan Bay.

The Go-Chi-Mor Trail (Gonu­bieChintsa-Mor­gan’s Bay), as it is called, was started last year by Gar­rick Faul and Stu­art Lust­garten.

Faul said when they started last year they were only do­ing it for fun and not as a fundraiser.

“But this year we started look­ing for char­i­ties and we ap­proached Gor­don Reid, who rec­om­mended Choc to us and we thought, why not; be­cause can­cer af­fects ev­ery­one,” Faul said.

He said they did not ex­pe­ri­ence any chal­lenges last year and hoped the event it would be a smooth ad­ven­ture go­ing for­ward.

Joined by 87 more peo­ple who took on this ad­ven­tur­ous trek, The Cows’s Gor­don Reid said: “This is what The Cows are about, we raise money for Choc.

“When I first heard about it, it sounded like fun and a great way to see old friends and just en­joy each other’s com­pany and at the same time raise much needed funds for Choc,” he said.

Choc re­gional man­ager Deb­bie Kleinen­berg said they were al­ways happy to re­ceive fi­nan­cial sup­port from The Cows and the pub­lic as a whole.
