THE COUNT DOWN
BurnRun, in conjunction with Sheppie Round Table 83, will see participants, supported by a backup team, travel to Vanderbijl Park in Gauteng to attend the Round Table Association Annual General Meeting.
The route will be along dirt roads (where possible), enduring a 4 day trip to get there. Total distance is 1230kms, and this should take 30 hours. The participants will be using dirt bikes, unconventional vehicles and in many instances, unconventional roads.
Why? The main idea is to raise funds for the Hero Burn Foundation.
Garbade chose a “Burn Charity” being close to his heart, due to the fact that a really great tabler, friend and brother was badly burnt in a motorcar accident on the 7th December 2014. Past Round Table Southern Africa Tabler of the year and Sandown RT150 41er, Mr Ross Crichton, survived the ordeal and has lived the recovery process. “Burns are the gift just keeps giving.”, says Ross.
BurnRun is proud to announce that Ross has agreed to be our spokesperson and that we have also got the support of Ross’s plastic Surgeon, Dr Deon Wyers, who initially suggested that the Heroburn Foundation be our beneficiary.
Burns are one of the most common household injuries, especially among children. The term “burn” means more than the burning sensation associated with this injury. Burns are characterized by severe skin damage that causes the affected skin cells to die.
