The Kernes Are First Aid Level 1 Certified

Written by Cam "Cambo" Kernes This past weekend Warrick and I completed a First Aid Level 1 course with Neil Kelham from First on Scene.

St Andrew’s School For Girls Challenge Other Schools To Match Their Donation #Qhubekaschoolchallenge

By Cam "Cambo" Kernes We’ve been super grateful for all the support we have received to date to help raise funds for Qhubeka. One such supporter is St Andrew’s School for Girls who heard about Joburg2Kili through our interview on Mix FM and they didn’t hesitate to make a donation of R2850 which is the exact value of a Qhubeka Buffalo bicycle which will be handed out to a child to help them get to school faster and more often. What’s more is that St Andrew’s has challenged other schools throughout South Africa to match or beat their donation amount! So please help spread the word...

Training Camp To Pilanesberg

By Cam "Cambo" Kernes This past weekend we decided to head off on a training camp with the team to the Pilanesberg National Park to test out all our camping equipment and to have some time to get to know the team better. However, Bobby was unable to join us as he will only be flying in from the USA next month just before our departure on the 30th July 2016. We drove up last Friday afternoon, in the Jeep Wrangler with the trailer in tow, up to Bakgatla Resort where we had booked a campsite for two nights. Bakgatla Resort is where...
