Temotio is the Brand Ambassador for the Machi Filotimo Cancer Project and runs Marathons in aid of raising funds for Cancer and our Cause.
He was meant to be running 90.2km in the upcoming Comrades Marathon on Sunday, 14 June 2020 in honour of all Cancer Patients to create awareness about Cancer.
However, following the regrettable cancellation of the 2020 Comrades Marathon and the postponement of nearly every mass-participation running event in the world, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) announced the launch of the one and only Comrades Marathon Association officially sanctioned virtual race, RACE THE COMRADES LEGENDS and it will be one with a significant difference. The world’s greatest ultramarathon is all set to stage the world’s greatest virtual event with runners from around the globe invited to participate.
Our very own TEMOTIO (TIMO) JACOPO will be running for THE MACHI FILOTIMO CANCER PROJECT.
TIMO will be running the full race over a MAX period of 5 days starting on WEDNESDAY, 10 JUNE 2020.
He is challenging all SUPPORTERS to donate R92.00 when he completes 90.2km race. But more exciting he has also challenged himself to do the 90.2km in JUST 3 DAYS!! He then asks for SUPPORTERS to sponsor R100.00 each if he meets the 3 DAY CHALLENGE!!!
What a fantastic event! Timo we are behind you all the way! Thank you for your selfless service to our project. Timo will be running this Comrades Challenge in celebration and support of Cancer Survivors Month!
Please support this wonderful cause and help us make a difference in creating awareness about Cancer and Treatment. The donations this campaign raises will be distributed to our partnered Cancer Institutions in order for them to continue to assist our cancer patients, whilst working together, hand-in-hand, to change lives.
