Henre Louw is raising funds for CANSA

Henre Louw is a 16-year old teenager who decided to change his swimming dreams into a career.  To make this decision early in one's life leads to many sacrifices as late nights out, lots of social events, junk food, and doing silly things like skate boarding and ice skating are out of order.  If you would have the chance to talk to Henre he will quickly tell you what he gave up, is far less important than what he gained from the sport.   Lessons like:

Never give up!

If you are beaten once, get up twice

Failure and disappointment leads to better things

Challenge yourself and raise your standards

Be there for your mates in the high tides but even more in the low tides

Listen to your coach!

For these lessons learnt Henre decided to give back to the sport by swimming all 8 miles at the Midmar Mile and to contribute the funds raised to CANSA.  With living his dream, he hope to put a dream in another's heart to stay positive and to keep fighting.
