“Making a meaningful change requires more than a marathon by one man. It needs a marathon effort by a community that cares."
Bjorn invites YOU, to take on the challenge of running the Paris Marathon with him and a team of athletes on the 9th of April 2017. The aim is to inspire HOPE, create awareness of the works done by Hilltop Legacy and raise funds to provide after school care for those kids at risk.
We have found that many kids are at risk between after-school and the time their parents are home, therefor the dream is to provide-after-school care that will inspire hope. This environment will provide safety and also an opportunity to further educate, mentor and add value to these future leaders.
Born to an alcoholic mother and a drug addict father, Alexander had a childhood filled with many challenges. He found escape in running and cross-country events and got his first big break when he met Theo Fourie, CEO of an American company, Attachmate, that sponsored his three-year course in sports management at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
Björn has recently run and completed the Berlin marathon as part of the launch of this initiative and the next one involves YOU.
Björn’s life journey from the “Ghetto’s to Success” will inspire people of all ages, as he talks about what made him rise above his difficult childhood circumstances to become Boland Cross Country champion and ultimately represent South Africa at the World Duathlon Championships in Canada.
Björn is a passionate Christian, and humbly shares how becoming a Christian has strengthened and guided him to find his true identity, and played the most significant part in his life’s successes.
Prior to the Paris marathon, Bjorn invites corporates, groups and individuals to accept the “I Coach Bjorn” challenge. Option 1 is to run the Paris marathon and raise funds for Hilltop Legacy and Option 2 is to contribute financially to his cause.
