R801 of R25 000 raised

My name is Phumzane, I am a male athlete living in Manguzi (deep rural KZN).  I am currently unemployed, living in a community with little economic opportunity.

I found the sport of running in 2012 when my life was difficult, and I was pushed to the edge physically and emotionally. Running literally saved my life, it has given me a spirit of hope, a sense of freedom, it has strengthened my faith in God and has given me good health.  It has shown me that money and possessions are not important in life.

I have been competing in marathon events across the country since 2013, and even under economic hardship, I am striving to improve.

The main challenge I experience is financing my entry fees, transport and sports clothing in order to train and compete.  I have tried asking publicly for money which can be humiliating and difficult, and I have approached the local municipality, yet I do not receive assistance.

I wish to compete in the following events in 2018:  PMB marathon, Zululand ultra-marathon, two oceans marathon, Durban city marathon, Comrades marathon, Mandela marathon, Sanlam Cape Town city marathon, and Soweto marathon.

The cost breakdown for the entire year is as follows:

Transport (incl. Taxi, flights):  R6 580

Entry fees:                                  R1 760

Clothing/shoes/gear:               R9 020

Accommodation:                      R7 600

I appreciate your support and may God bless you.
