Jason Raath is raising funds for CHOC

This year marks my 6th 8 Mile Club, now called the Charity 8 Challenge. Each year we get to swim all 8 events over the Midmar mile weekend, and we get to raise funds for a worthy cause in the process. 8 Miles of swimming over the two days.

Event number 7 this year will mark my 50th Midmar crossing, so I'm super stoked. It's my fourth year swimming for CHOC, that too is also a biggie. I'll be doing a lot in my CHOC kit over the next few months, whether it's riding my bike, running or swimming, the next few months will be dedicated to raising money for this very worthy cause.

Erin will be joining me for her third year swimming Midmar Mile (I can't wait for that).

I have, since I started raising money for CHOC, raised over R75,000 with over R35,000 raised last year alone. Owing to COVID-19, our fundraising targets have been reduced somewhat this year, so we as swimmers are under a lot less pressure. The reduced pressure on us though does mean that the charities are under significant pressure as well, so please contribute where you can. Given the fact that people are under pressure, charities suffer a great deal. Every penny counts!!!
