Chris Geils OCAL GLOBAL 2019 Journey for Change

Chris Geils OCAL GLOBAL 2019 Journey for Change

Personal message

On the 8th of May 2019 I will be take a one-way flight to Pretoria and then I will be running back to Cape Town...

I will be part of a team of 12 who will be running from Pretoria to Cape Town. This team will comprise of abled bodied runners as well as differently abled runners who will take on this incredible non-stop 24 hour, epic 10 day, 2100km journey from Pretoria to Cape Town, leading up to the final stage of the journey, where team OCAL Global will make their way to the start line of the FNB 12 ONERUN on the 19th May. The Journey For Change is to challenge and change the perceptions around disability.

As one of the team members, I have committed to raising R25 000 that will go towards the beneficiary for this year. We will be raising funds for individual differently abled children in the Northern Cape. All these children have physical disabilities most commonly resulting from Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Bifida, amputations, genetic syndromes, spinal injuries and traumatic brain injuries. The funds raised will go towards their immediate mobility and day- to-day living needs, and all these funds will be used to purchase (in consultation with our occupational therapist partners), wheelchairs, walkers, prosthetics, crutches and other equipment.

As you can imagine this is a huge challenge and but I am more than willing to step outside of my comfort zone in order to bring about some positive change.

OCAL is an NPO - The focus of OCAL GLOBAL is to empower Differently Abled Persons in establishing sustainable goals for themselves and their respective communities and cultivating an environment to achieve those goals.

*Funds will go directly to OCAL GLOBAL who will administer funds in response to each child's individual need*
