When did you join D4D?


Why are you involved with D4D?

I enjoy doing distance events and combining it with attending to the needs of children, is a privilege and something I feel I can do to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ while I am still on earth.

Tell us more about your family.

I am married to my wife Ilse. I also have a son, Daniël, from a previous marriage.

What sport do you do? Any tough events done?

Road running, cycling and hiking. 10 Winelands Marathons, 9 Two Oceans Marathons, 3 Comrades Marathons, 5 Cape Town (Argus) Cycle Tours, 2013 THE500 incomplete, Fish River Canyon Trail.

What are your future dreams for D4D?

I pray that the Lord will guide us to where He wants us to go, but my dream is that we will be a channel through which money flows to children in need, to uplift their dignity and self-esteem. We should have a positive impact on society, but most importantly, the Kingdom of God.
