Lucky draw prize winners will receive their prizes at registration.

Please check your entry label on your envelope – you may well be one of the lucky prize winners.

Through the voluntary donation draw you have contributed to an amount in excess of R19 000 being raised. This amount will be matched by the Dis-Chem Foundation. We thank you for your generosity. These funds will enable children from needy families to undergo preliminary testing to identify the gene mistake causing their retinal vision loss – this being a pre-requisite for inclusion in gene specific clinical trials and ensuing treatments.  

Please read a Word from Our Sponsors – without their invaluable support the entry fees to this and similar such events would be prohibitive, they deserve our support.
