TEN BOYS living with life-threatening illnesses were treated to a game drive and outing at Magersfontein Safaris on the weekend as part of the Reach for a Dream project.

The boys, who are from Kimberley, Bloemfontein, Upington and Douglas, are between the ages of six and 14 years.

They were escorted to Magersfontein Game Lodge by members of local bikers clubs, the SAPS, the traffic department and Emer-G-med, in the event of any medical emergency, while the fire brigade put on a display for them.

Lenmed Royal Hospital and Heart Centre donated blankets to the children.

Reach for a Dream manager in Bloemfontein, Yolanda Martins, said that each child earned a medal and the title of Captain Courage for their determination in fighting and living with a serious illness.

Martins said that Reach for a Dream also usually hosted a group of girls on a Queen for the Day programme, where they are pampered at a beauty spa or salon.

“The group outings are held apart from fulfilling individual children’s dreams.”
