As a trail runner passionate about the outdoors, environment, biodiversity and conservation I've decided to make my miles count in 2020 and throw my weight behind environmental and conservation issues.
I wanted to sign up for a cause greater than merely running a race. I want to move from a person merely concerned for our environment to actually doing something about it. I therefor decided to enter the Tusker Race and raise much needed funds for the Eden to Addo initiative.
Eden to Addo's vision is to link three mega-reserves in the Southern region of South Africa, namely the Garden Route National Park, The Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve and the Addo Elephant National Park by means of natural corridors to protect and restore the integrity of bio-diversity and eco-system functioning, and as a corridor warrior my aim is not only to run the Tusker Race and live to tell the tale, but also to raise a minimum of R25 000.00 to assist them with this and to spread awareness of the importance of this initiative far and wide.
I wholeheartedly support the Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative and I sincerely hope that you will support me in my quest to assist them to raise funds to not only maintain the land they've got but to also increase the land. To quote the initiative: "There is no point in protecting species without protecting their habitat."
Let's all move from merely being concerned about our environment to actually doing something! Please donate and help me help them to make a change.
For the love of running and the environment.

Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative
THE DREAM: The Eden to Addo vision is based on the practical potential within the landscape connecting the Western and Eastern Cape of South Africa. But this vision is guided by a deeper question and dream: What if we could re-establish ancient elephant migration paths across the Cape, what then? What other wildlife will benefit and how would that restore the ecological balance of the region?
