From myself, #OMTOM and the @ShoesOnFeet team, THANK YOU

On the 19th of April, I will be participating in the 2014 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon… The half one that is. It’s known as the world’s most beautiful race and I’m totally excited to complete my first one and get that medal. This year, I’ll be doing it for team at the Put Foot Foundation. The aim is to raise R10,000.00, which is around fifty pairs of school shoes. I’m already on R6200, which is amazing and I want to thank the people below who have donated so far. If you would like to help me out, here’s a link to the donations portal
