Education is a gift that sets one up for success in life and getting started early is crucial. In South Africa it's difficult at the best of times but Covid-19 has put it under more pressure than ever.

Sponsoring Julian as he grinds through the heat and dust of the Namib Desert makes you a gift-giver too! Funds will be channeled to Masikhule to be used to run their ECD centers and train educators at these centers.
"It’s the hardest event I have ever done, but while I will be suffering for 20 hours there are people who suffer every single day – that’s why I am doing this race and raising money specifically to give towards education of younger generations. They are the future.”
