An Unlikely Hiking Hero

An Unlikely Hiking Hero

Personal message

In an unlikely turn of events, I’ve decided that this winter’s fundraising efforts must go above and beyond my previous hair shaving and beard grooming efforts. Literally beyond.

Anyone that knows me will attest to the fact that the words hiking is not in my vocabulary.

The reason I’m doing this is to help keep our NPO Breaking Bread running with a much-needed financial boost. My goal of R 10, 000 (£560 approx.) will keep us running for at least two months while we continue to work towards sustainable funding, in addition to finding a permanent home for our soup kitchen.

Hiking isn’t just about me pushing myself to get outdoors and exercise. It’s so far outside my comfort zone that I feel like rescinding my entire campaign as I write this, which is even more reason for pushing myself to do this.

Breaking Bread works with Cape Town’s most vulnerable people, and it’s crucial that we can operate and continue to offer our services.

Please dig into your wallet or purse and help send me up one of Cape Town’s hiking trails. 

I’ll be doing this with the expert guidance from Weigh Up Project, so I’ll be in safe hands.

And to add insult to injury – I’ll be training and trying to lose some podge prior to the hike. In the tradition of doing something positive for 67-minutes, I'll be using that as a minimum amount of walking time per day leading up to the end of the campaign. 

Please donate, share and help push me out of my comfort zone for an amazing cause.
