Xylon - Ironman for Smile Foundation 2019

Xylon - Ironman for Smile Foundation 2019

Personal message

Can you remember a time when you overcame something you thought was impossible? 

Overcoming my fear of open water swimming has been a journey of perseverance. I only learnt to swim properly 12 months ago. And now I’m taking on Ironman with a 3.8km swim. In addition, as a cancer survivor, I’ve learnt the value of community and helping each other get through life’s challenges. 

This is why I wanted to use the challenge of taking on my first full Ironman to put a smile on a child’s face and why I wanted to invite you to be part of the journey by donating.

I’m kicking it off by donating R13/$1 per mile of IRONMAN but please give any amount as every donation will make a difference. 

Smile Foundation together with the country’s academic hospitals work to put the smile back onto children’s faces with corrective facial reconstructive surgery and treatments. Find out more at smilefoundationsa.org

Support my IRONMAN journey by making a donation to the Smile Foundation.
