DK and I love to ride... boards, not bikes, but boards. Our brother Kevin Jordan however loved to ride bikes... and drive cars and play with his kids and do things for his wife that shows that he cares...
DK and I have taken on the challenge of cycling nearly 100km next weekend - yes 20th November 2016. No time in the saddle - I've done this before, but DK is a total bike virgin. We will be doing the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge for a cause - to raise awareness and funds for You and Me versus MND.
My brother's story:
After being diagnosed with a disease known as MND, Motor Neurone Disease, ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease (dependent on who you are talking to), Kevin's ability to do these things he loves decreased. Kevin is lucky enough to have an awesome support circle, but through the disease and the MNDA of South Africa he has come into contact with people who do not have this, or the resources to acquire the tools needed to help people with this disease to stay able to be mobile or communicate with those around them.
Kevin started You and Me vs MND as a platform to raise awareness and funds - you can read all about it and the events organised by them at:
You can follow and support him/them at:
All we are asking is for a small donation to go towards You and Me versus MND's fundraising efforts and their aim to raise ZAR 200 000 for MNDSA in 2016.
What will you get in return?
1. You will feel like you did something good today!
2. You will get to see DK - who never wears anything to show off his legs into tight cycling kit.
3. You will get the chance to win a 'signed' copy of Kevin's Autobiography - 'Dying to Live' . *Only applies to donations before Monday 21 November 2016 that include contact details.
4. You will make us even HAPPIER than we are - and you know that making others happy makes you happy too :)
So PLEASE PLEASE donate :)
