Lionel's Ironman for the Smile Foundation

Lionel's Ironman for the Smile Foundation

Personal message

Doing an Ironman is a dream come true for me . I have been a spectator to the PE ironman for many years, but always had a fear of swimming in the sea so I thought I would never be able to compete in one . Last year I went for lessons and conquered my fear. I am doing Ironman because my friend Robyn Dougans is doing it . If she can do it so can I."

I'm honoured to be part of the The Smile Foundation Ironman Team.  And we have a joint goal - to raise funds for this incredible organisation.  To change the lives of children with facial conditions and to help them realise their dreams through much needed free facial reconstructive surgery.
Please help us in some way, by means of a donation, change a child's life.

Thank you for all your support throughout my Ironman journey – it’s kept me going.  And thank you for your donation to The Smile Foundation.
