Rough & Tough Rally for Cancer

Eileen van der Schyff

The Rough & Tough Rally has become a prestigious, but also an extremely fun event, which was created to raise funds and awareness of cancer in aid of the Cancer Association Of Namibia.

This year a total of thirty-nine teams entered with nine support vehicles. One hundred and twenty people stood together to fight the fight against cancer! Last year the Rough & Tough Rally raised around N$200 000 that was contributed to the Cancer association of Namibia.
The event started at Windhoek’s Tony Rust racetrack. From there everyone headed towards Karibib where they overnighted at the Klippenberg Country Lodge. They next day was the drive past Usakos and the participants had lunch at Spitzkoppe. The slept over at the Brandberg Rest Camp in Uis.
On day three, participants headed through the Omaruru River, past Okom-bahe and onto the D-2315. On that night they overnighted at the Koedoeberg Lodge.
The driving force behind the Rough & Touch Rally is Phillipie Baard with tremendous support from his family. His brother Dirky Baard had his bicycle on the roof of his combi as a Plan B. Dirky thanks all the sponsors and says that it really made a difference.
