"I am not free while any woman is unfree, even where her shackles are very different from my own" - A. Lorde 2017 will mark my 3rd #TwoOceansUltraMarathon and this year I am running as part of the A21 Team. This year I #RunForFreedom #ForMoreThanMyself. For the awareness and abolition of Human trafficking. Nothing makes my body shudder than the thought of someone I know; my thirteen year old sister, 16 year old cousin, a friend or even myself, being sold into the sex slave industry. This year I run for the ONE who may be rescued today, tomorrow or in three years' time and has a chance to heal, rebuild and recreate self. Because people should never be bought or sold. You might not run but I do. My goal is to raise R5 600. The Ultra Marathon is 56km. So that’s a R100 for every KM.
