Flip Flop Day 2022 – have a heart and wear a sole!

Childhood cancer is a frightening reality that many families across South Africa have to deal with daily. South African families face the most challenging battle they will ever have to encounter – alongside the little warriors fighting on the Frontline. But luckily, these brave children and teenagers, along with their families, never have to stand alone.

Flippie is back for CHOC’s Flip Flop Day 2022

 

Flippie! South Africa’s favourite and most well-loved CHOC SOLE-dier. Flippie a flip-flop with a wholehearted passion for compassion. He’s stepped up to lead the movement to get every South African – young, old, corporate, casual, from the seaside to the city – to have a heart and wear a sole! All he wants us to do, quite literally, is to kick off our shoes for a day and slip on a pair of flip flops in support of the brave children and teenagers at CHOC. He is determined to get every one of us to set our 10 toes free, and walk beside our little fighters in solidarity against a disease that needs to know that we will NOT give up without a fight!

 

And as we ring in our 3rd year of the CHOC Flip Flop Day, we’re given a 3rd opportunity to show the children our passion & support by reminding them that they are never standing alone! CHOC’s annual event will be celebrated on the 18th February 2022, and this year it’s going to be bigger, better and filled with more sole.  South Africans are certainly filled with wholesome souls when it comes to our children, showing that we can rally behind them, as CHOC SOLE-diers, and truly be a force to be reckoned with.

“I am thrilled that one of the first major fundraising events as newly appointed CEO of CHOC is the exciting Flip Flop Day. Wearing my flip flops and my sticker allows me the opportunity to emphasise that a few minutes is all it takes to make a meaningful contribution to ensure that no child or teen walks their journey alone. From children at schools, business colleagues, health workers and all other South Africans proudly showing their commitment to uplift the lives of children and teens on their cancer journey” states an excited Hedley Lewis
