During October, a group of good-hearted business men took an off-road trip from Bloemfontein to Cape Town on motor bikes, valued at +- R5000 in order to raise funds and awareness for Beudene Daycare for Disabled. The motor bike engines were not allowed to have more power than 125cc.  As one of the participants mentioned afterwards:
“It was so significant for all of us, we could identify with the great challenges that come with living with a disability or being the parent or caretaker of a person with a disability.  We travelled about 220 km per day on gravel roads with motor bikes that travel slower, do not provide much comfort or have the bells and whistles similar to the normal motor bikes.   We were faced with potholes, dust, gravel roads, extreme heat and all kinds of challenges.  All of us could not help to identify with people with disabilities, we realized how these learners (and parents of these learners) have to travel extreme off-road tracks on a daily basis, lifelong.  It was truly an eye opening and humbling experience for each and every one of us.”
The support for this TT2C initiative was overwhelming as they were able to raise R150 000 from over 40 different business men in Bloemfontein.  The funds have been used for maintenance and repairs of the building; much needed new tyres were also fitted on the school bus.
Beudene is so fortunate to have the support and friendship of these great guys with so much courage and compassion.   We are humbled by the fact that they not only contribute their funds but also to come spend the day socializing with the learners.
