I have been swimming since the age of 11 and it has become a passion in my life. My parents have made many sacrifices to fuel this passion and they have given me a tremendous amount of support.
Now that I am 16 years old, my goal is to swim my first 8-mile Midmar Challenge which I have been working towards since 2015 when I swam my first Midmar Mile. To date I have swum the Midmar Mile six times and 2021 will be my seventh time.
To mark this very important highlight of my life, I feel the time has come for me to give back and I have chosen to do so by supporting the CANSA Charity.
Cancer can touch the lives of anyone and I would like all suffering from this affliction to know that no-one fights alone – Cancer is a word, not a sentence. By supporting this charity, I choose hope, courage, perseverance and strength for the fighters and peace for the survivors.
Big or small, let’s save them all!
