My wife, Louise de Wet, was tragically killed in a car accident in April 2021. She was a founding member of Hannah Bee Foundation. As a commitment to continuing her legacy, I will be attempting the Desert Dash in Namibia; a 393km, 24 hour ultra endurance mountain bike race on the 9th December 2022, in order to raise funds for Hannah Bee.
Hannah was born prematurely on 25 May 2016 weighing only 1.9kg. At a day old she had surgery on her intestines. She spent 3months in NICU. At 20months she was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Diplegia. This affects her legs and her ability to balance and walk, but this doesn't stop her from living her best life.
We hope to raise funds that will go towards surgery to correct the position of her right leg and foot, her travel expenses and rehabilitation needs.
Please read the memorial message from Hannah's mom, Carly, in the photo gallery.
I don't have Louise's talent for organization and making things happen, so I really need your help to make this campaign a success. Hannah and I really appreciate all the support we receive!

Hannah has just returned from Capetown where her family consulted with her neurosurgeon, orthopedic surgeon, and ophthalmologist.They will perform three surgeries on Hannah on the 18th of January 2023. Her surgery was intended for December but her family didn't want her to be in casts and uncomfortable over the Christmas. . . . .
