Why do we raise funds for charity?
Evil only triumphs when good men, women and children do nothing.
The Nuts & Bolts Rally is a metaphor for the journey that many charities often endure. The journey is difficult, unpredictable, challenging, never embarked upon alone or as an individual, yet rather with the help and support of others – with the firm resolve to achieve the unthinkable: To travel across some of South Africa’s most arduous roads in a cheap and old jalopy. It is for people who know that life is extremely short and who are eager to fill theirs with a spirit of goodwill, adventure, laughter and tears. It is for those who are willing to reach out and help complete strangers. It’s for those who live to create extraordinary memories while making a difference in the lives of others. It’s therefore not simply a fund raiser, but rather a life changing event for both participants and our recipient charities alike. This is why our cars are colourful, vibrant, weird and fun – an essential tool in delivering our message of overcoming the unthinkable.
