HELP ME SUPPORT THE CHILDREN!

Personal Message:

Over two years ago, at 34 , I was diagnosed with an incurable brain cancer. I believe that we are not defined by what happens to us but how we respond. My diagnosis made me want to live more, experience more and be more. It was then that I fell in love with triathlon - fascinated. at what my body could do. Triathlon has also brought beautiful places and people into my life. After completing the Durban & East London 70.3 and the Ironman African Championship Nelson Mandela Bay in 2021, I've decided to again enter the 2022 Ironman Championship on the 3rd of April! I'm so grateful to all who have sponsored me to date ~ and because of you over R50k has been raised for Project Playground the NGO where I volunteer my time. I am once again taking on the IRONMAN challenge to raise fund for kids in need I would like to ask you all to once again help me to raise money for this amazing charity Ironman4thekidz - lets help give these beautiful children a second opportunity at life - just as I was given. 💪 "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" ~ Winston Churchill

If ever there was an athlete suited to raising money for charity, it's Pat. Such an inspirational story and it's a privilege to train alongside him and watch him thrive. Unbelievable talent and even better person!
