SA’s first 100 Miler trail run – in aid of Breast Cancer
30 crazy people doing crazy things, in order to make a small difference…
On the 25th January athletes from throughout the country will gather in Wilderness to take on the daunting task of cover a distance of 160 kilometres – non-stop. This is all in order to raise funds towards purchasing prosthesis for Breast Cancer patients that have had to undergo a mastectomy (and are not able to afford reconstructive surgery).
Local trail runner Chantel Nienaber will be hosting the runners. They will not be racing the route, giving them the opportunity to “smell the roses” and take in the beauty of our spectacular surroundings. The charity drive will begin on Friday the 25th of January in Wilderness. Considering the participants will exceed24 hours in which to complete the course, Chantel specifically opted to arrange it during the full moon – hopefully highlighting the trails at night.
The participants of the “Every BOOB Counts” 100 miler, are hoping to raise approximately R 80 000 towards this worthy cause. If you would like to pledge a donation towards helping a Breast Cancer survivor, please contact Chantel directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
