That's Jake and Ben wearing their cow gear. All proceeds to CHOC. They (and my trophy wife) are my best supporters in all the world.
It's all happening at this year's 94.7 bike ride expo. Walking around with my udders swinging is pretty embarrassing but after doing it for the last few months at meetings, restaurants, radio stations, etc, you stop feeling the sting of the blood as it rushes to red on your cheeks.
The cows have come together in a big way. Since our radio interview this morning on a local Joburg radio station, Highveld 94.7, we currently have raised 1.9 million Rand. That's a lot where we come from and sufficient moolah to buy the kids a house for their Cancer treatement, a van to get them to the hospital and back, and there's some left over to update the two treatment wards at the Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital. And maybe there'll be a little something to get them prezzies for Christmas.
Tomorrow night all 140 cows get their gear from Alex Jay, a legendary DJ in these parts, and a plate or two of pasta.
The forecast is hot and rainy. I'm looking forward to getting outside.
Buckle up for this Sunday we ride,
