Given my connection to CCDT and knowledge of the work they do it was only natural that I should use the opportunity of my competing in my second Ironman competition to raise money for such a needy cause. I had signed up for Ironman South Africa along with Jean Eichaker; we were to compete on April 22 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. An Ironman consists of the following, done without breaks in the same day: Swimming 3.9 km then Cycling 180 km and finally running 42km (a marathon).
Jean and I travelled to South Africa with high hopes and although conditions on the day were not good, driving rain and high winds, we both completed our event in around 11 hours.
We were only able to raise the money through support from friends, colleagues and family. Combined, we raised over SGD16, 000 for CCDT and we hope that the money will help the cause.
Keep up the good work CCDT! Jean and I will be doing another Ironman next year in Australia in June. Hope for better conditions. Wish us luck. Thanks again to all the CCDT Team!
