Natalia's Two Oceans Half Marathon for Afrika Awake

Natalia's Two Oceans Half Marathon for Afrika Awake

Personal message

This weekend I will be running the Two Oceans Half Marathon as planned. I will be doing it in the 10m long driveway of my house. It won't be pretty and it won't be quick - but it will get done.

I am asking you please to support me, by donating to a charity that is really important to me - Afrika Awake. This charity is assisting refugees and asylum seekers living in South Africa and they especially need help now. The COVID-19 lockdown is really tough on the poor - especially on foreign nationals who rely largely on small street businesses to survive and have no access to social grants. Included in this group are vulnerable people such as car guards and waste pickers. These are our neighbours from Rwanda, Burundi, DRC, Zimbabwe etc, so they are also far from home. 

Your donations will be used for feeding the homeless who are not in shelters - amongst other emergencies. So whatever you can spare - rands, cents, dollars euros - any little bit will be appreciated. And it you can't donate right now, please send me some good vibes for my run on Saturday!
