On the 4th of June, 2017, myself (Henco) and my wife (Marche) will run the Comrades Ultra Marathon (88km's) to raise funds for our favorite charities.
Marche is raising money for Pink Drive. Pink Drive is the indispensable breast cancer Public Benefit Organization that powers South Africa's first mobile Mammography Unit and Educational Unit throughout the country. These units travel to semi-urban and urban areas around South Africa to enable various disadvantaged communities access to education and examinations.
Henco is raising money for Pietermaritzburg and Durban Community Chest. The organization is a non-profit organization, committed to raising and
distributing funds and providing services in a professional and
efficient manner, to organizations engaged in meeting the Welfare,
Education, Health and Income Generation needs of the Community
. Their vision is to make a difference and an impact in the lives of the disadvantaged
in our Community by awakening the public to a sense of Social
Responsibility and the economic need to assist the disadvantaged.
All funding will be split 50/50 between these two charity organizations.
