Lauren Justus is raising funds for Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation

Its such fun to do something we love and whilst doing it, raising money for a fantastic charity, The Princess Charlene Foundation.

The foundation has children at its heart by teaching them how to swim, so as to put an end to awful drownings. Read more at 

I promised to swim at Midmar every year with Dad; we did so for 19 years. Sadly, my Dad passed away suddenly in April. My husband, John, has committed to swimming all 8 Miles with me, in memory of my Dad. At Dads funeral, I promised to live out his legacy... Dad was a giver, so this year I will personally MATCH any donation of R1 000 or more made to either John or me!

Together our target is to raise R20 000 for The Princess Charlene Foundation. 

Thanks for always supporting... it means so so much to me!

Please share this with as many people as possible! 

God bless, big loves!

Lau and John xox
