1 For cancer awareness

2  As my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer during August 2011, it became apparent that many cancer sufferers get diagnosed to late for treatment to be effective and successful.  During January 2012, I had a conversation with an individual that indicated to me that the drive is the path I must follow to make a difference in the lives of others that might not know that they suffer from cancer.  In doing some research, I found that the fatality rate amongst cancer patients can be significantly reduced if the cancer is diagnosed early enough that treatment can be effective.

3  The Pole2poleandback drive is designed to cover most of the continents of the world.  The drive is to start at the South Pole marker in Antarctica.  Travel through South America and North America.  Turn around at the North Pole Ice Cap  Travel through some of Asia and the most of Europe.  Transverse Africa on the journey back to Antarctica.  The end of the journey would be back at the South Pole Marker.  The whole drive, from Pole marker back to Pole marker in less than 12 months. Planning stipulate the completion in 335 days

4  The drive will cost approximately $1 000 000 per rider excluding the shadow ship that is needed.  Totalling $5 million in Sponsorships required.  With every item that is sponsored, the amount of funds required will come down.  Any funds that is raised for the drive, that is not being used, will go towards the beneficiaries of the drive namely CANSA and Hospice Palliative Care South Africa.  Exposure for the Sponsors will be elaborated on later.

5  To bring the awareness of cancer to as many people as possible along the route of the drive.  To encourage the people to get to know their bodies and encourage self examination for potential signs of cancer.  To encourage the regular testing for potential cancers.  Bring the message of Early Detection, Early Treatment to the people.  By ensuring that cancer is detected early and treated early, the patient will be able to live a longer and productive life with family and friends.

6  To encourage the establishment of support groups for the families of cancer patients.  As there are so many support groups for the patients, the families that suffer with the patient do not have a support structure from people that have already experienced.  Sharing groups where experiences in dealing with a terminal family member can be discussed.  These groups can form the support for the families in their hour of need.  Sharing ideas as to how best deal with the trauma of seeing their family member pass away and what to do afterwards.

7  To raise funds for the drives beneficiaries.  Funds to be allocated to the support for the families that can not afford to travel to support the patient while they are being treated for their cancer.  To ensure that every cancer victim have access to proper treatment.  To help with the financial burden of treating the patient in their last days – Hospice Palliative Care.  The target of GBP 5 000 000 per beneficiary is envisaged.

8  Events will be planned to raise funds along the route of the drive.  Internet based donations.  Direct donations  Sponsorships  Interest from investment of donations.  Rallies with some of the Biker clubs along the route.  Appearances at VIP events to encourage donations.  Telethons to promote the Drive.  Participation in challenges along the route.
