Get Bevan to New York Marathon

Personal message

I am Bevan, I sustained a brain injury in a hit and run on my motorbike in 2015. After several weeks in a coma, I find myself navigating my new normal. 

3 and a half years in I’m doing well with the love and support of my wife and all the people and institutions who believe in me. I have not sat down and cried feeling sorry for myself, I have stood tall and have fought harder than I think I have ever fought in my life. 

I have adopted a positive attitude to get me through the struggles and have accomplished some challenges I never thought possible. I have completed the 2017 NYC marathon, Telkom 94.7 cycle challenge 2018 and now I have been accepted to tackle the 2019 NYC marathon. This time, I am paying it forward, I am training and travelling with a fellow TBI friend in this epic feat.

I love and thrive being active, I walk and I run, I get a sense of independence that nothing or no one else can give me. I’m not disabled, I’m differently abled. I will stand up and fight harder and live harder. I have learned that it’s not about how many times you fail but it’s about how many times you get up and try again.

Cost breakdown, please note this is for 2 people - My caregiver and myself
Flights R16000 (R32000 for 2 people)
Accommodation R8000 (R16000 for 2 people)
Food R2500 (R5000 for 2 people)
Bevan’s Race entry R5000
Admin and Application fee R1500
Running shoes R3500
Remaining funds will go to Bevans training for the marathon

I will not this let this injury defeat or define me. Please help me realise my dream and succeed in my 2019 challenge.
