Hi, its me Katie Conrad. As some of you may know I have just spent the past year in Florida, America. There I was working on a boat usually known as a Super Yacht, I did some traveling and had a great experience, one thing I was not doing however was exercise! I really let my usual routines and lifestyle disappear and indulged in far too much of Italys pizzas, pastas and gelato. This is where the two oceans comes in, while one big goal of mine was too get back on track fitness wise I knew that this would not happen if I couldn't find a better reason that was bigger than just myself. While traveling the world in luxury I always came back to the thought of just how many children in South Africa have so much to offer the world but due to poverty and a lack of education they may have this opportunity. In a small way I would love to help some of the children growing up in my own community and I invite you to join as well. By helping me raise funds for Prochorus we CAN make a difference in the education of a child and will help me find the motivation to finish 21 kms.
Through any donation no matter how big or small we can reach the goal of R2000 which will supply an entire year worth of stationary, school uniform and books that will allow a child to successfully complete their year.
I will continue to update this page with my training progress pictures and of the marathon.
thank you so much
