I heard it said, “Talent is equally distributed but opportunity is not.” I now have the chance to be a part of something that will tip the scales and provide opportunity where major talent already exists. Since first visiting Gugulethu almost 5 years ago, the area has maintained a special place in my heart. By running the 2 Oceans Half Marathon my team and I will raise funds for the Gugulethu Innovation Hub.
The Innovation Hub will be a multi purpose space that not only creates an attractive urban environment in the community, but also houses a range of programs in which people can be equipped to connect to the local and global community. The aim of this Innovation Hub is to combat youth unemployment and strengthen families within Gugulethu. For more information you can check out this link: http://innovationhub.africa
My squad will be training mentally and physically for this race. If you would like to participate financially and be a part of making a change in this community please donate! Thank you!!!

Hillsong Africa Foundation
The Hillsong Africa Foundation (HAF) has been active in building lives in communities in
South Africa since 2010. Our vision is simple and clear: “Building lives that will build the Nation".
Through the involvement of many volunteers HAF is currently actively impacting the lives of more than
1,800 people every week through over 40 projects in 9 different communities in South Africa.
We are racing towards deepening the impact in our target communities by introducing brand new Innovation Hubs where young people will be able to learn, grow and be inspired to be the best they can be!
