Earlier this month, trans-tibial amputee, Stan Andrews announced that he would be attempting to summit Mount Kilimanjaro – the highest freestanding mountain in the world. His friend and prosthetist, Marco du Plooy, will join him on the expedition. Du Plooy will be climbing barefoot in attempt to raise funds for Pathways in Pretoria, a learning facility for children with disabilities. These two men are now appealing to corporate and public sponsors alike to support them in their mission.
Pathways-Pretoria is a non-profit organisation, initiated in August 2002 and co-founded by parents in their quest to find school accommodation for children with various disabilities. The school provides services to children with severe mental and physical disabilities, speech impairments, blindness and visual impairments, hearing impairments and autism.
Pathways-Pretoria are imploring corporate and public sponsors to come on board and help them to raise much-needed funds for Pathways-Pretoria, said the intrepid team of adventurers. “We need South Africans to support us with donations so we can help to make a difference in these children’s lives.”
To sponsor this expedition, donations can be made directly into Pathways-Pretoria’s account using the phrase “StandWithStan” as a reference:
Menlyn Park Branch
Savings account: 918 785 8965
Branch code: 632005
Pathways-Pretoria is an Article 18 organisation and a tax certificate can be issued upon request.
Stan and Marco’s excursion is set to take place from 16th to the 22nd of September 2012. And South Africans will be rooting for their success in their endeavour.
