KOUGA Traffic superintendent Rean Nel is back home safe, having conquered the 10km Cape Town Impi Challenge over the weekend.

Nel, his brother and four friends finished the race, described as an “adventure obstacle trail run”, in a time of 2 hours 33 minutes, conquering many a slippery slope and muddy stream along the way.

“My body is sore all over, but it was an incredible experience,” he said.

Nel and his team took part in the Impi Challenge to raise funds for children born with RETT Syndrome.

RETT is a neurological disorder which affects mainly girls. Often misdiagnosed as autism or cerebral palsy, it is believed to affect at least one in 10 000 girls across racial and ethnic groups.

Nell said their aim was to raise R50 000 for Cure RETT South Africa, the only organisation that supports families affected by RETT Syndrome.
