Hello Hubbers,


Whilst this is not a bike related plea, I am an avid MTB'er and part of the issue that landed me here is a serious MTB accident I was involved in in August 2021, where I, amongst other things, fractured a vertebra in my thoracic spine.


As you may or may not be aware, every year at Midmar Mile a small group of us participate in the 8 Mile Club charity swim where we raise funds for worthy causes. This year will be my 7th, but it is going to be the most special due to the fact that my daughter, having just turned 16, has just become eligible to swim this event, so it will be our first 8 Mile together. When I had my accident in August, the prognosis was that I was most likely not going to be allowed to swim this year. I've been feeling strong and it appears as if I'm good to go, albeit with very little training. I'll most certainly not be going for a time this year.


The problem I have is that I was not expecting to swim and therefore, having delayed my fundraising, I'm running out of time to raise funds. I'll be swimming for CHOC, for whom through cycling and swimming, I've raised over R100K for in the last four years. Please can I ask that you consider donating or at least forwarding the below link onto your friends and family. Anything will make a difference, big or small. You can donate online via credit card and all donations go to the charities.
