Ian Walters, a Grade 6 pupil from Kenridge Primary school was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on 28 October 2016. He was taken into hospital on the same day where he immediately started intensive chemotherapy treatment which is still ongoing. He will continue with this treatment as well as start radiotherapy in the next few days. Harley-Davidson® is a brand that stands for fulfilling dreams of personal freedom so we called on all in our community to help us support Ian as he goes through this difficult period of medical treatment to regain his own personal freedom from this disease! Ian loves the game of cricket and we want to see him fulfill his dreams of playing for the Proteas one day.
Sunday 11 December was a beautiful day, with Cape Town showing off in all it's summer glory! Over 120 compassionate locals flocked to our dealership to show support for Ian by attending the Ian Walters Show with artists Loki Rothman and Francois Van Coke. While customers could donate online when purchasing tickets, there was also opportunity to donate funds at the door as well as purchase raffle tickets and orange Leukemia ribbons to show support. The raffle prizes were kindly sponsored by our friends at Hey Gorgeous Willowbridge and The Hussar Grill Willowbridge as well as a hamper from our dealership.
Both Loki Rothman and Francois Van Coke put on stellar performances for the crowd! A huge thank-you goes out to these gentlemen and their teams for coming together for this worthy cause. We'd also like to thank each person that donated toward Ian's expenses.
We wish Ian and his family strength during this difficult period and trust for a full recovery! Thank you for allowing us to contribute to your journey.
