Kimberly Rose Cancer Foundation
The Kimberly Rose Cancer Foundation was founded in loving memory of 15-year-old Kim-Batya Asher who died from a rare form of Osteosarcoma.
The foundation aims to offer early discoverers of the disease a research function to provide information/advice on alternative and/or complimentary cancer treatment options outside South Africa.
The foundation also aims to raise funds in order to import much needed cancer-fighting equipment for South Africa to assist those who, under normal circumstances, may not be able to afford international treatments.
The foundation will use events to raise funds and also plans to release a book, detailing the story of Kim and her family from the day she was diagnosed to the months after her passing – in the meantime, the book is being published in the form of a blog.
A portion of each rider’s entry fee will be donated to the fund in support of the foundation.

With breath taking views of the our valley it is worth your while to drive the 10km on the gravel road towards the mountains outside the village of McGregor. This cooler climate and real terroir, where nature’s bounty has chosen high altitude for cooler temperatures, where sun, water, soil and slopes are melded, work in perfect harmony to produce cultivars like Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Chardonnay. We pride ourselves in making unique wines true to our terroir. “My goal is to create timeless, elegant, balanced wines, that everyone will enjoy. When I open a bottle of wine, I want to enjoy it to the last drop.” -
