I am a 46 year old teacher originally from Durban, South Africa. Running was never my first love but as I grew older I developed a very intimate relationship with it. It grew to proportions that can only be described as an obsession.
I have lived all over the world but now find myself in Central Asia, Kyrgyzstan where I am the Director of a school in the Bilimkana group. I love the country and the people.
Charity work started from the young age of 17 where I was drawn to doing various events. It started with a 5 day, 274km run for an orphanage in South Africa which was the hardest thing I ever did and 28 years later I am still at it. I will never forget the feeling I had after I reached my destination at the orphanage. It never gets easier but it surely gets more rewarding trying to change lives and make a difference. In the process of running, swimming or cycling for charity I experience new things, meet amazing new friends and help change peoples lives!
I don’t think I will ever stop. Its in my blood and it is something that I simply need to do.
