Running barefoot to raise 144 pairs of school shoes

I have completed The Two Oceans Ultra (56 km) barefoot and the Comrades Marathon (88 km), barefoot, to help raise the funds for 144 pairs of school shoes, one pair for each of the 144 kids in the Durbanville Children’s Home. If we can raise 144 x R199 = 28 686, each child can get a new pair of shoes.

Ek het die Twee Oseane Ultra (56 km) en die Comrades Marathon (88 km) kaalvoet gehardloop, want ek wil graag 'n 144 paar skoolskoene insamel vir die 144 kinders van die Durbanville Kinderhuis. As ons 144 x R199 = R28 686 kan insamel, sal elke kind ‘n nuwe paar skoene kan kry.
