#BESTRONG

OUR MOTIVATION

In today’s times we have all been connected with someone who has had a battle with cancer. Sometimes, that battle is a lot closer to home.

CrossFit Jozi members Kim and Neil Sears lost their mum, “Valiant” Valerie, on 7 February 2014 after a long fight with cancer. Part of what kept Valerie going so strong, aside from the support of her loved ones, was the amazing work of the Sunflower Fund – an organisation whose aim it is to educate and recruit potential bone marrow stem cell donors. The simple yet life-saving procedures of stem cell implants are largely unknown, and costly.

The Sears would therefore not only like to honour Valerie’s memory, but raise awareness and money to support the work of the Sunflower Fund. It will be a reminder to those suffering from life-threatening disorders, and their loved ones, to be strong!

OUR GOALS

To honour the memory of “Valiant” Valerie.

To raise awareness about bone marrow stem cell procedures.

To recruit potential donors.

To raise money for the Sunflower Fund.

To support the greater community.
