Brent Comrades Marathon 2012

Brent Comrades Marathon 2012

Personal message

Hi Everyone

 

It’s my last comrades Marathon this year as I’ve decided to take a break after 3 in a row.

As many people may know I lost my aunt to cancer this year and have decided to dedicate this one to her. Two years ago she was on the road in Pinetown as I ran past and this year she won’t be there.

Noreen had a passion for CHOC (Childhood cancer Foundation South Africa) the same charity that my mother started supporting after Ashley recovered and I’ve decided to run for them again this year.

The money raised last year by everyone that sponsored me went into such good use that it’s inspired the continuation of my mission.

This year I run my 89km with the intention of raising as much money as possible for the patients in South Africa and as a final farewell to a Strong woman, my aunt, who inspired so many.

Please donate remembering that every little bit makes a difference.

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation Logo

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA is the only organisation in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. CHOC has a head office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, two branches, and 12 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. CHOC relies heavily on corporate sponsors, donations from groups or individuals wanting to make a difference in the lives of these little ones.

Their comprehensive support improves the welfare and quality of care of children with cancer and offers families a wide range of psychosocial services and practical support such as counselling, free accommodation, free transport and transport fund to ensure that no child abandons treatment due to the family not affording transport costs, food parcels as they recognise the financial difficulties families often face and parent to parent support groups. CHOC also plays a leading advocacy role and promotes early detection to save lives nationally.
