Ben's Lockdown Lawn-athon for Solidarity Fund SA

Ben's Lockdown Lawn-athon for Solidarity Fund SA

Personal message

"Thuma Mina" means "send me" - the COVID-19 pandemic is the most definitive "Thuma Mina" moment for our country. Never before in the history of our democracy has our country been confronted by such a severe situation; but, it is a situation which we will be able to overcome if we work together. Across our country, people and organisations have offered to help and the Solidarity Fund is a vehicle that has been set up to facilitate this.

On Saturday April 11th at 07H00, I will be running a full marathon in my garden (a 42.2km "Lockdown Lawn-athon") to raise money for this incredible initiative. During my 704 laps, around the 60m perimeter of my garden, I aim to raise R20 000. My target is big, but my faith in good people to contribute towards such a meaningful initiative is even bigger. 

The event can be livestreamed from 07h00 in segments on Facebook (Ben Philpott) and Instagram (@benrphilpott), and regular live updates will be available, so feel free to send through some positive vibes and words of encouragement...they'll be needed! If all goes well, I'm hoping to be done by 14h00 (fingers crossed). 

Any contribution will be greatly appreciated and go a long way in supporting the fund to reach its aims to "prevent", "detect", "care" and "support".
