Hold thumbs for car draw

IF YOU have bought the R200 ticket to help raise funds for Cameron Coetzee, cross your fingers that you are the one walking away with the Suzuki Swift tomorrow.

The competition was launched in October to help baby Cameron who has been diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere syndrome (BVVL).

The organisers started off with 2000 tickets to sell and there are now only 400 left!

People are encouraged to still buy a ticket to stand a chance to drive off with the Suzuki Swift worth about R150000.

BVVL is a progressive, neurodegenerative condition that is characterised by hearing loss, vocal chord paralysis, droopy eyelids, difficulty with swallowing, as well as visual difficulty. This is due to a mutation on genes that affect the transportation of vitamin B2 (riboflavin).

“The lucky draw will take place at the Bayside Green, Bayside Church in Beacon Bay tomorrow. The draw will coincide with The Greens Neighbourgood Market’s grand opening and a 4km fun run or cycle hosted by the Bayside Fit Park. The event starts at 9am,” a family friend managing the fundraising campaign, Sandra Booysen, said.


BRAVE LITTLE FIGHTER: Tomorrow all those who supported baby Cameron Coetzee, who suffers from the rare degenerative disorder Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere syndrome, will know if they have won the Suzuki Swift up for grabs

For people who still want to purchase tickets, contact Sandy on 072-376 2318 or send an e-mail to sandyb.diettian@gmail.com.

“The 4km fun run or cycle is suitable for adults and children as it is an easy route which follows the trail routes at the Bayside Fit Park from where the event will start tomorrow,” Booysen said.

Early registration is R40 and R50 on the day. Some proceeds will go to Coetzee and some will go to the maintenance of Bayside Fit Park.
