It will be a privilege for me to be able to take part in the 2018 Two Oceans Ultra Marathon to raise awareness and funds for indigent kidney patients in support of the Cape Kidney Association after losing one of my own kidneys in January 2008.
The Cape Kidney Association is a non-profit organisation founded in 1978 by a group of Nephrology Doctors who support Kidney dialysis patients with food parcels, travel allowances to get the hospitals for their dialysis and bursaries to further their studies or start-up costs for small businesses. This is the only organisation in the Western Cape that is Kidney patient care based.
So, as you know, part of the Two Oceans event is fund-raising, and I would like to ask you to sponsor me with a donation to run in this event in 2018 in order to make a difference.
Cape Kidney Association
The Cape Kidney Association was founded in 1978 by a group of Nephrology Doctors and Nurses who saw the need to assist the Indigent kidney patients. Patients travel from afar as there are no dialysis units close by. We serve majority patients in the Renal Unit at Groote Schuur and Tygerberg Hospitals. Most of the patients are unemployed and some of them receive disability grants.
