Fundraising team on 10 day trek to fix youth centre

Viwe Tyolwana
An intrepid team of fundraisers including well-known author Dana  Snyman, set off on one of South Africa’s toughest hikes – the Tankwa Camino Enduro Walk.  Their aim, besides finishing, is to raise money for the Jannie Roux Child & Youth Care Centre in Barkly West, run by Caritas Community Focus.     The  10-day trek follows South Africa’s longest gravel road from Calvinia to Ceres,  crossing the stark Tankwa Karoo. Participants will sleep overnight in tents and walk an average of around 27 kilometres each day, braving sun, wind, cold, blisters, sore feet, and exhaustion.    Thirteen staff members and friends of the Jannie Roux Centre will be making the 256.6km  trek, joined by Dana Snyman, who has pledged his support to the project from the outset.  Also joining the team is Zeva the dog, who will be helping to keep morale high as well as raising some money herself.     The team from the Jannie Roux Centre decided to raise funds when staff realised that its maintenance costs couldn’t be met without help. The centre provides permanent housing and professional care for 85 children between the ages of six and 18 but is currently in serious need of renovations. Costs are estimated at R250,000 to repair the roof, replace
