The reason why I am swimming and competing for Rainbows and Smiles is: Although I am not a mother and do not have children, I have lost family members and friends to cancer.
I also have a very special place in my heart for children in particular. When I heard of your and Bonnie's stories and the great work R&S do I immediately wanted to be part of it.
I love training and partaking in sport and being able to create awareness and funding for such a great cause while doing what I love is a dream come true for me. In the collage there are two photo's of me with Mickey ears.
I dedicated that race to two amazing ladies and friends of mine (Riana van Niekerk - former professional SA athlete and Jolene Du Plessis - mother and beautiful friend) whom both passed away from cancer in 2016. This is an opportunity for me to do my bit in helping children and families affected by cancer.
