I have entered the Corporate Triathlon Challenge 2017 - it is one of the events been held as part of the South African Ironman event 2017. It's sprint version of the main event - 380m swim. 18km cycle and 4.2km run
I am raising funds for Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital through the Children's Hospital Trust. The money raised will go towards equiping the upgraded Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. The ICU provides world class care for injured and critically ill children of South Africa, as well as the rest of Africa.

The Children's Hospital Trust
The Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital is the only specialist hospital dedicated entirely to children in southern Africa and manages 260 000 patient visits annually. Very sick children are referred to this world-renowned tertiary institution from all over South Africa and the African continent.
Since 1994, the Children’s Hospital Trust, the Fundraising Arm of the Hospital has helpd raise funds for building upgrades, new equipment and skills development programmes. As the Hospital was built in 1956 the outdated facilities were in critical need of upgrading. Despite this the Hospital is world-renowned as a centre of excellence in paediatric health-care and research.
100% of donations received by the Trust go directly to the Hospital, not a single cent is spent on administration costs.
