The Big 5 Challenge

When one truly believes in a cause it can lead to some crazy adventures and wild expeditions. This describes the Big 5 Challenge perfectly! Running the Two Oceans Ultra-marathon, completing Iron Man and a quick swim from Robben Island to Bloubergstrand all under the belt, we can safely say that our fundraising model is like no other! With our founder Joel Stransky leading the pack, as well as some very faithful LumoHawk Supporters jumping in too, it has been an active year so far to say the least. However, all this is not mere fun and games, but rather our way of raising awareness and support for a project that we are truly passionate about – Vision2020. Our eyes are on the next price now – Comrades 2019!

Absa Cape Epic 2019

The Absa Cape Epic is known as one of the most prestigious mountain bike races in the world. Spanning over 8 days, riders’ transverse throughout the beautiful Cape region, with much speed and skill. This set the scene for our most recent Eye-testing outreach. Partnering with the Anna Foundation, we managed to test over 100 children from the local area, providing glasses to over 25 children. On Stage 4 of the race, Absa and the Cape Epic riders, came together to bring about awareness of our Vision 2020 initiative in the most incredible way. Each rider was given a pink riding shirt and encouraged to wear it in support of LumoHawk – it was a sight to behold.

LIV Lanseria

We launched our first Vision 2020 outreach at LIV Village Lanseria in April of this year. Together with Anthony Carlson, and 10 students from the University of Johannesburg, we headed out to LIV’s Afterschool Program to commence testing on learners. There are about 150 children enrolled at the program and the Afterschool provides a safe space for the kids to come and do their homework in, as well as receive additional academic support and snacks. We were able to test 40 of their primary school children during the afternoon with over 50% of them needing glasses. Mama Nomaza, who runs the Ithuteng Program, was very grateful and explained that she was expectant to see the impact on the learner’s academic results going forward.
