Make a Splash and Make a Difference

Faraja’s annual White Water Rafting Challenge is an annual event organized by Faraja Cancer Support Trust in partnership with Savage Wilderness Camp.

It is a fun way to team build, network and have fun for a good cause. If you, your family or friends have gone through cancer treatment, you will recognize the importance of pulling funds together for urgent treatment.

White Water Rafting gives you, your office, church or group of friends a chance to be part of an adventure sport where you get to make a splash and make a difference in the lives of children and adults with cancer in Kenya.

The Event

1

Each team should consist of 5 people over the age of 13 years old

2

Due to the limited number of guides, we can only have up to 20 teams on each day

3

No experience in rafting/swimming is required, qualified raft guides are provided to each team

In 2019 we held our 6th Annual White Water Rafting Challenge at Savage Wilderness Camp at Sagana and what a fantastic time we all had! We are overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm shown last year by both corporate and individual teams. We had some fantastic new fundraising initiatives that were not only creative but simple and fun. On behalf of everyone at Faraja, thank you for helping us raise awareness and funds to support our services.

The team that raises the most money, over and above the registration fee will get the first chance to pick their guide! Whereas all rafting guides are well trained and professional, a guide with more experience is a sure way to win the race. Our 2019 White Water Rafting Challenge would not have been possible without our very many partners. We simply cannot do what we do without you.

A Fighting Chance

In one way or another, we have all been affected by Cancer, be it suffering from it directly, watching a loved one dealing with or even knowing someone who has been through the ordeal.

Cancer patients are warriors who go to battle every day – strong, resilient humans facing fate with strength that comes from the will to survive. While the future may seem daunting, there is still hope and other options that can, in many cases, help patients fight against all odds and successfully beat it.
