I am a driven, passionate man who wants to make a difference and actively contribute to society through my positive energy and expertise.
Specifically close to my heart, is the suffering caused by the ravages of ALS to the ALS sufferer and their families. .
As I have a passion and flair for cycling, I feel I am able to use this in a way that can benefit a cause that is very close to my heart.
On the 8th May 2013, I took off on a What a Way to Go Mission, 12455 km in 88 days, from Cape Town to Kilimanjaro. To climb KILIMANJARO, and ride back to Cape Town. I was on a solo mission, with no backup team, all my gear in a 40kg trailer attached to my bike. I made it to Windhoek, but sadly had to withdraw due to injuries. (Facebook page from last year?)
A year later, I have co-worked plan of action – looking forward to a successful venture for 2016, even more determined to my dream, inspire others; and ultimately to make a significant contribution to the Fight against ALS.
