Caleb Swanepoel

Personal message

Hi, my name is Caleb Swanepoel and I am a shark attack survivor. I am an above the knee amputee and a South African para-athlete.

During March 2021 I will be taking part in the first ever Adapative Crossfit Open in Cape Town, South Africa.

I will be doing this in partnership with Jumping Kids South Africa, Motley Crew Crossfit and Reebok South Africa. Jumping Kids, a registered non-profit organisation focusing on 3 main areas: mobility, education and sport. They work with coaches, mentors and athletes to introduce children with disabilities to various sports. 

I will be raising funds for Elijah, an 8-year old amputee who is passionate about cricket, running and Spider-man. He is also an avid Maths and Science student.

The goal is to raise R60,000 to buy him a new prosthetic leg so that he can become more involved in his school sports and activities.

Fitness and sport play a huge role in my life. It helps connect us, it motivates us, and allows us to set goals and to connect with an incredible network of people. 

Please support this initiative and the journey by following @calebswanepoel on Instagram.

Jumping Kids Prosthetic Fund

Jumping Kids Prosthetic Fund Logo

Jumping Kids supplies and maintains prosthetics for children. We maintain this support for at least 2 years from inclusion, but ultimately we would like to support the kids until they have completed school. Our mandate is to provide amputee children with the tools that assit them to be contributing memebers of society. We consider these tools to be:

  • Access to prosthetic equipment and maintenace thereof;
  • access to mainstream schooling;
  • access to sporting opportunities. 

With this support, these children have the chance at creating a future like any of their able bodied peers.

We currently support over 80 children around the country
