Nicky - Rainbows Hope Challenge: 13 June 2021

Personal message

Running is an integral part of my life; it is my absolute passion and makes me a better person!

The Comrades Marathon has now been cancelled for 2 years in a row, and this has always been my favourite running race of the year. This past year I have had some challenges in my own personal life, and running has been my sanity in dealing with trying times.

Training for 90km has given me a goal and a purpose and given me something to look forward to doing every day. I know that this year will be extremely tough, given that I will be doing the 90km on my own and without the thousands of supporters carrying me through.

However, this is definitely not as tough as the lives of many around us.  I am running my 90km for Rainbows and Smiles, and when my legs feel like they cannot carry on anymore and my mind starts to give up on me, I will think of those so much less fortunate than me and know that if they can continue, so can I!

Please click on the Donate Button to contribute to her dedication and determination to run for a reason.

Leave a brief message for her to keep her motivated.  Knowing your small CHANGE will make a BIG difference.

Thank you for your beautiful heart.
