Bernhard's Three Peak Challenge

Bernhard's Three Peak Challenge

Personal message

This year I will be participating in the Three Peaks Challenge, a mountain running trail of some 50km which involves ascending the three major peaks above Cape Town, namely Devils Peak, Table Mountain and Lions Head.

I have decided to dedicate my race to raising awareness and funds for an amazing NGO called Mamelani Projects.  Mamelani is a registered NPO that runs a  Youth Development Programme that works specifically with young people who have grown up in a Children’s Home. When they turn 18, they are forced to move on from the system. Many of these young people are not ready for this transition and without adequate support, after years of stability, they struggle to cope with this new reality. Aside from needing emotional support, many of these young people need to be supported to stay in school, attend skills training programmes and find meaningful work. Mamelani's programme helps them to remain focused, motivated and move forward in their lives.  Please could you support me on my challenge to help youth reach new heights

Below is a message from Mzukiseni, one of the participants that Mamelani has supported, about what he values about the programme:

“When I joined the programme I asked myself what will I achieve. Where will I be at the end of the process – and I am where I wanted to be now. I am prepared for an interview – to talk to anyone, my communication skills are stronger and I gained a lot of confidence over these last few months. I appreciated the support I got from you guys – I like the fact that you challenge us sometimes, put us in critical situations where we have to choose a way to go forward or choose to run away from the challenge – these are the things we are going to face out there. I have learned that if you run away, the challenge doesn’t go away – you have to face it. Each time we come here for the camp, my highlight is jumping off that rock – it’s like letting go of something, making a new start – and each time I go higher”
