IRONMAN for Nature: Louise

IRONMAN for Nature: Louise

Personal message

Hi, my name is Louise Strydom and I am from Gauteng, Pretoria.

The IRONMAN for Nature charity objective is to bring athletes, sponsors, and organizers together to benefit conservation and nature. All proceeds raised are allocated to Wilderness Foundation Africa for them to implement their conservation projects.

On 3 April 2022, I am racing in my 4th IRONMAN Africa Championship. But this time, I am racing for something bigger than just myself. Triathlon has given me more than I could ever imagine and it is time to pay it forward. 

No wo(man) is an island, and I need your help to reach my fundraising target before my race date.

Through my fundraising drive, I will help Wilderness Foundation Africa work in their 3 key focus areas: Species, Spaces and People.

Species: Protecting endangered species. Key focus currently: Rhino. On the ground protection and demand reduction in Vietnam, a key user country.
Spaces: Expanding protected areas, improving the management of protected areas.
People: Youth Development, bridging the gap between youth from challenging backgrounds and opportunities that conservation can present.

All funds raised will go towards the three key focus areas of Wilderness Foundation Africa. One of these focus areas provides aerial support, vehicle support, and K9 support to protect endangered rhino populations under the constant threat of poaching. The funding raised will assist with this as well.
