In 1995 eight times comrades runner Aaron Ngubane got shot 5 times after a race. The shooter shouted: " You think you are better than us because you run on Tv." He spent a month in ICU and then 6 months on crutches. This left him unable to live his passion for running and he had to give up his job. He has a bullet lodged in his spine. Doctors advised that if removed may leave him paralyzed.
Aaron's dream is to start a running club in his village to keep the youth from crime. He wants to encourage the youth to participate in sport and to inspire them through motivational speaking to reach their dreams regardless of their circumstances.
In order be taken seriously he will need a running kit, training equipment, supplements, a vehicle, participation fees, as well as to build a small gym/office for safekeeping of equipment and administrative purposes.
He wants to start an annual charity race from his village to Pietermaritzburg to raise funds for himself and his athletes. Thank You
