Why, you may ask am I posting this here on the KayPeeZee website. Well On 20 September 2015, I will be running my first full marathon The Cape Town Marathon which is all of 42.2km and I will be running for Anex
Anex(Activists networking against the exploitation of children) is a children’s rights non profit organisation, based at the Saartjie Baartman Centre in Athlone. The aim of Anex is to combat all forms of exploitation of children (including child trafficking, child labour, Commercial Sexual Exploitation of children, Children used by Adults to Commit Crime) through prevention and early intervention programs. Anex’s head office is based at Saartjie Baartman Centre. There are also two satellite centres in Beaufort West and Murraysburg.
This has turned out to be more than just a personal goal. It has become a collective challenge to not only face and overcome my limitations but also stem the tide of some of the social ills in our society affecting the most vulnerable in out communities.
