Natalie DAVENPORT is raising funds for CHOC

🏊‍♀️ Join Me in Making a Splash for a Worthy Cause! 🌟

Hello friends, family, and fellow supporters,

I am excited to share my ambitious goal for 2024: an extraordinary 8-mile swim in the Midmar Mile to raise funds for a cause that's incredibly close to my heart. This endeavor is not just about conquering the water, but about conquering childhood cancer and providing crucial support to their parents too πŸŒŠπŸ‘Š


As many of you know, my journey towards this swim holds a deeply personal connection. I have witnessed the devastating impact of cancer on families, from heart-wrenching losses of family members to inspiring stories of strength and resilience. Having seen loved ones battle this relentless disease - from the aunts who powered through to the brave uncle who continues his fight today - I am more determined than ever to make a difference.

I am proud to announce that I'll be swimming in support of CHOC - the Childhood Cancer Foundation. CHOC is more than just an organization; it's a beacon of hope for children and teenagers diagnosed with cancer or life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. Comprised of caring, committed, and passionate individuals, CHOC stands tall to support these young warriors and their families in their most challenging times.

Founded in 1979, CHOC started as a support group for parents of children with cancer. The founders, having personally experienced the emotional and financial toll of cancer, recognized that the battle against this disease encompasses not just the child, but the entire family. Their mission was clear: to provide a lifeline of accurate information, unwavering emotional support, and practical assistance to parents facing the same journey.

But this is where you come in. I am reaching out to you, my cherished community, to rally behind this cause. Please consider joining me in supporting CHOC's invaluable work by making a donation. Every contribution, big or small, is a step closer to making a real change in the lives of these children and families. Your support carries the promise of hope, strength, and brighter tomorrows.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your unwavering support, your love, and your belief in the power of coming together to bring about change. Let's make waves of impact together!


With gratitude,

Natalie 🏊‍β™€οΈπŸŒŸ
