Founded in 1999, the Sunflower Fund is a South African non-profit organisation dedicated to creating awareness, educating the public and facilitating the registration process for people to join the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR).
Rasheda Van Den Hurk, the Sunflower Fund PR and events specialist said: “Our Mission is to educate and register stem cell donors. We fundraise to cover recruitment costs to grow a healthy, effective and ethnically diverse South African Bone Marrow Registry. The 2016 Cell C Day Of Races in Cape Town was an awesome experience for us. It was the first time that we participated in an event of such a capacity and excellence. We loved every minute of it and so did our runners. We would like all entrants to help us spread the message of hope. Our partnership with the Cell C Day Of Races is sure to enhance the reach of our campaign.”
