Fundraiser Profile


Ipeleng
Khunou

Being the centenary year of our loved Tata Nelson Mandela, I selected the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund for an opportunity to touch lives and honour Madiba’s legacy. I want use the Two Oceans “the world’s most beautiful marathon" to run for a greater cause by raising money for the NMCF. It’s not just about the money raised but also about uniting the country into a common goal of doing good for another person without expecting anything in return. As a society, we can forget our humanity to fellow humans - we need to breathe and stop for a second and remember that human life is priceless.

Personally for me there is no bigger motivation in life than getting up and running because it’s not meant to be possible for me to even walk to the bathroom. My doctor, Professor Machan Head of Neurology at Baragwaneth Hospital says its rare for someone with Septo-Optic Dysplasia to be able to enjoy life. My dream would one day is to see people with disabilities living to best the best of their abilities.
