We are overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm shown this year by both corporate and individual teams. We had some fantastic new fundraising initiatives that were not only creative but simple and fun.
44 teams! 500 spectators!
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.
Each team should consist of 5 people over the age of 13 years old. Due to the limited number of guides, we can only have up to 20 teams on each day. Anyone is welcome. You don’t need to have rafted before or know how to swim to join in with the fun! Savage Wilderness will provide an experienced and qualified raft guide for each team, who will be with you throughout the challenge. 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.
Kshs 2,500 per person. (Includes the BBQ lunch and transport to & from the event)
Kshs 1,500 (For transport only).Self drive is FREE! Snacks will be on sale in case you want to have a family picnic.
There are other camps next to Savage Wilderness that allow spectators but may charge a fee of between Kshs 100-200.
All guests are welcome to stay in one of our cottages or camp, at an additional cost.
Please call Mercy of Savage Wilderness on 0737 835 963 to book a cottage. Camping is always more fun!
Every participant will be awarded with a medal of participation. Other trophies include: Overall Winners, Overall RunnersUp, Winner Friday, Runners up Friday, Winner Saturday Morning, Runners up Saturday Morning, Winner Saturday Afternoon, Runners up Saturday Afternoon, Winner Sunday and Runners up Sunday. And that’s not all, prizes are awarded to teams that fundraise over and above the registration fee.
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.
