HOT 102.7FM presenter Bunny Majaja took to the skies on Sunday, December 12 with her wingman Buddy Bear, the HOT Cares mascot, to create awareness for the HOT CARES charity.
The Johannesburg based radio station says that Majaja was challenged live on-air during the 2021 Teddython. Stephen Gleisner, MD of The Courier Guy and sponsor of Joburg’s Hottest Breakfast on HOT 102.7FM challenged Majaja to take to the skies with her wingman Buddy Bear in an Old Skool Acrobatic plane.
The challenge was accepted, and the duo received R250 000 for the charity.
Additionally, Tony Murrell and Simon Hill — members of the Joburg’s Hottest Breakfast show — were challenged by Westpack Lifestyle and Papachino’s family restaurant to take on various stunts to raise money for HOT Cares.
Tony Murrell tandem skydived with Buddy Bear, and Simon Hill was sent racing around Redstar Raceway while trying to finish a Buddy Burger in record time in a pink tutu.
The station says that Majaja’s stunt would be the most ambitious and most rewarding for the charity. Due to the dangerous nature of the stunt, all precautions were taken and Majaja teamed up with Ace Acrobatic pilot Arnie Menenghelli from Hired Gun Aviation at Rand Airport.
“I can’t wait to go up again. This was the most incredible experience,” says Majaja.
