South Africans don’t really need a reason to start a braai but recent years have seen the increase in record braking braai challenges and many for a good cause. Being fanatic about braai just became a great platform to create awareness for Bi Polar with the current Braai Polar event kicking off on the 14th!
Timeless Talks is proud to mention that two of our clients Timeless Technologies and Namchar are some of the sponsors for the event. Namchar will be sponsoring some of their well know charcoal and Timeless Technologies will supply the thermal cameras showing just exactly how hot those fires are!
“This December sees the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa play host to Braai Polar 2. Not 1 But 2 official Guinness World Record attempts by 3 South Africa Adventure Braai Masters. Pieter van Dalen & BraaiBoy will be attempting the 4 day Team challenge and @Braai for 96 Hours straight, while Richard will be attempting to better a previous attempt in March this year and do 120 Hours non-stop! Yes, that is 5 days!! All of this will be in aid of Bi-Polar awareness and will take place from the 14th to 20th December.
“WHY BRAAI POLAR?
Other than the obvious of being able to say we hold the Guinness World Record for one of the hardest braai (BBQ) titles there is, we will be raising funds to establish a platform for Bi Polar awareness in South Africa. Our aim is to establish an interactive website that will allow parents to instantly connect with other parents that have children with this condition, to allow adults with this condition to find answers, and for partners and family members to find hope. Offering workshops at schools and at institutions, to help people understand that they do not have a disease, they have a condition, it is treatable and it is live-able! I was diagnosed with Bi Polar 3 Years ago and when I wanted to find out more about it, there was NO BODY to talk to. No one I could call and that was frightening. Why is there Help so readily available for narcotics and alcoholism, even obesity, but not for a condition that is literally life destroying if you don’t understand it. If you understand it you will have the power to control it and have half a chance of a normal life.”
The venue will also host a mini Braai Expo as the stepping stone to an annual Braai Expo that will showcase Braai Innovation in South Africa.
Braai Polar will also be the 1st event of its kind worldwide to stream a Guinness World Record attempt LIVE on Facebook Get ready for an EPIC 5 days of Ultimate Braai Action!”
