Blind Loyalty Medical Campaign

Hi, My name is Amanda Cromhout, and I am from Western Cape, Cape Town.

I had to miss my 7th consecutive Comrades ultra-marathon due to blindness in my right eye. I will run Comrades (90km) in June 2023 and probably 3 or 4 42.2km marathons to get there, plus a few ultras - with one functioning eye only. This blindness was caused by fusarium keratitis, which before March 2022 was an unknown entity to me. 

Please consider covering the platform fee so more of your donations goes to our project.
