Reach for a Dream bring children to MotoGP

After six years of MotoGP racing at Welkom, the Reach for a Dream Foundation visit of sick children to the paddock has become synonymous with the event. Today four children with life-threatening diseases got the chance to meet their heroes, with John Hopkins, Kenny Roberts Jr., and Sete Gibernau welcoming them to the Phakisa Freeway and showering them with gifts and memorabilia.

"It puts our racing into focus that's for sure," commented Gibernau. "These children are braver than any rider and I hope they recover soon."

Juani Meyer (16) who suffers from Chrone's disease, Gerhard Pretorius (17) who has muscular dystrophy and cancer sufferers Dewalt Cilliers (6) and Thuliswa Ntangeni (11) also got the chance to take a spin around the Welkom circuit in one of the official MotoGP Safety Cars.
