And that’s a wrap!
This morning Dave completed his first official Two Oceans Marathon and his 50th running of the route in as many days. He ran faster than his previous runs, completing the race in 05:10:02. Well done Dave!
As of today we’ve raised R122 423! Thank you to everyone who donated! These funds will go towards continuing our important work to establish a penguin colony at the De Hoop Nature Reserve and further investigate another site in Plettenberg Bay.
