Charity 8 Challenge 2024

Jason William Gaskell is raising funds for Chad Le Clos Foundation

Hey folks!

I'm Jason—the actuary attempting to create a splash in the international health insurance sea. You might wonder why a numbers guy is swapping spreadsheets for swimsuits in the aQuelle Midmar Mile Charity Challenge, but trust me, it's more thrilling than any data dive.

In 2022, I cannonballed into the Charity 8 Mile like it was the coolest pool party of the year. Why? Because South Africa's drowning stats are scarier than a Monday morning meeting, and I'm on a mission to face both head-on.

As an aficionado of endurance races, I find the mental challenge as refreshing as a chilled pinot gris on a scorching summer day—think Sudoku for the soul, but with more splashing. I'm not just chasing personal records; I'm making a splash for a cause close to my heart—the Chad Le Clos Foundation.

With my employer Discovery's mission to "make people healthier and enhance and protect their lives" ringing in my swim cap, I'm channeling that energy into the water. Join me in this aquatic escapade, where we'll conquer waves and statistics alike. Let's contribute to the Chad Le Clos Foundation, proving that making a difference can be as revitalizing as a cannonball on a sizzling Dezemba day.

Take the plunge with me, and let's create some tidal waves for change!
