Make A Difference; making adventures make a diffrence

Personal message

In this world, it is simple I want to Make A Difference. I have always had a passion and drive for the goodness that is part of our world and I would like to dedicate all my adventures, my races, the victories (and my losses) to being part of the good! Every little bit does count. By contributing R30 000 towards The Smile Foundation.

Things I have done and things that I am going to donever ends, I choose to explore the world and country we live in as much as possible on foot or by bikebecause it is what makes me smile.

some of the adventures I have done have been solo but I am surround by family and friends that means I am never alone on them. 

12 hours (of awesomeness) ENDURANCE CHALLENGE, hosted by Wild Trail events at Rosemary Hill: We placed first mixed team and covered a total distance of over 100km between Paul and myself. 

THE TRANSKEI TUFF: getting to meet and be a part of the Lunar Chicks (all girls) team and racing with them in the beautiful Transkei. This events covers over 150km's with a combination of trail running, mountain biking, kayaking, orienteering, kloofing and possibly even snorkelling...

JHB TO CT CYCLE TOUR: A group of 4 (potentially crazy) couples along with a support vehicle are attempting a 14 day mountain biking adventure tour through parts of this beautiful country (some towns I have never heard of even) we call home! Daily distances range from 60km's to 181km's and we are sure to be in for all the good times and all the laughs that will come with such a feat.

taking on The Otter Trail in  was a big head space change for me, I had gone though a rough patch, everyone gets them and not only did Otter help me have a goal to workk for it took me the most beautful trail in Sounth Africa where I outran my expectations, smiled the whole way and the human asked me to marry him at the end. It is events likethis that make everyearly morning count and even more why I will keeppushing to raise funds for children to beable to smile from ear to ear and enjoy this beaitiful like we should all get.
