Charity 8 Challenge 2024

Carol Sacke is raising funds for CHOC

It's 2024 another year another big swim .

Why do I swim 12.8km year after year?

 I'm healing my soul...

You see Kelli my little one of 8 would have been 22 this year. She died in 2010 from an inoperable brain tumor.

She is in heaven I know. At 63, I am stronger now but just a bit but I still have my wobble days,  but very soon I'm getting in my costume to swim for another little person, another family struggling to hold on to there child. 

We are not promised tomorrow.  So while I have good strong muscles a strong mind  I'M GOING FOR IT! 

Please consider helping me raise my target of R15000.00 

As you read this I am training hard to get to the end of this difficult swim.

CHOC helped me cope when I was a total mess, I have seen the good work they do first hand.

Kelli I do this in your Honour.

To my children Jenni, Greg and Caira and then my best friend, and SPECIAL husband Kevin Sacke I Salute you.

With your help I can make it.

By donating you are helping another child suffering from Cancer you are the Real Champions.
