“There once was a little boy who went around saying, "Hi! I'm Hennie Klopper!" He was not very tall, and he only had a soft voice, but he had shining eyes and the most exquisite giggle. Everyone who met this little boy fell in love with his kind heart and his unique way of seeing things (purple Smarties are okay at 21:00 at night - but only the purple ones). Most of all, people fell in love with this little boy because he had so much love in his heart.
This precious little boy couldn't stay with his family - he was taken away too soon by an evil called DIPG: the little boy's family was heartbroken. Even though the little boy could no longer be with his family, his family always felt his love for them: they were changed forever because of how the little boy loved them.
They needed to share his love with the world by supporting children who needed their help. So this special little boy's family did as much as they could to honour him, and one of these things was to swim a race. This wonderful little boy's aunty thought to herself, "Swimming this race will be hard and scary" but she remembered her nephew and how brave he was and she grew courage.
This precious, special, wonderful little boy is Henry Gideon Klopper. We will swim to honour Henry, and to help all the other children battling cancer. Please donate to our family team and join us in supporting those little heroes who are already facing a much harder, scarier enemy than swimming a race: because children are more precious than gold."
