Hi, I'm Zaren and I'm from Cape Town.

Meet Nicky - Nicolaas Wilhelmus Serfontein. The most genuine, humble, and down-to-earth person on the planet. 

He has unfortunately been attacked by the dreadful bacterial meningitis infection and currently on intubation and in an induced coma as he fights for his life. The doctors are trying all they can at this stage. There will be a very long recovery ahead and not being able to work, this family will need assistance for a while. 

He owns his own business (a swimming school - Splashing Stars) and as we all know, no work is no pay. And he will need assistance for a few months. 
There will be medical expenses to cover as well as day-to-day living expenses. This will help tremendously on his road to recovery, knowing that the financial burden is lighter on his family. 

On Saturday (10 July) I will be running to raise funds. I myself will pledge R100 per km I run in order to collect contributions (which I will do with a smile). Fixed contributions also more than welcome. (Please note I am not a trained runner but will give my absolute best. The pain I will feel doesn’t compare to what so many are going through currently). 

PLEASE HELP ME RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE TO HELP THIS WONDERFUL FAMILY. 

I am excited to do this for someone that is so dear to so many (and a family member of ours)  

If we stand together and each give a little - we can achieve so much.
