Sooooo… this isn’t a pyramid scheme or anything, but the fact is that running the Comrades does not happen for free. Alf receives so much support from his club, and his company (SHOUT OUT TO SOUTHERN IMPLANTS, WHOOP WHOOP!), but this year, to commemorate the additional challenge he took on by converting to Banting, we’d like to help him out with covering the rest of his costs.
Here are the items we think would really help send him on his way:
- Transport (hey, you don’t expect him to run BACk to Durban from Pietermaritzburg do you??) – R1100
- 4 nights of accommodation – R900
- Food (Banting, obviously…) – R600
- Team tracksuit, for keeping those muscles warm before and after – R420
- Running vest – R120
If you’re interested in chipping in, click the button below and you’ll be taken to our (totally legitimate) PayPal gateway. Any extra money left over from the above costs will be donated to Meals on Wheels Community Services South Africa. (Check out the Spread the love link above for more ways to help these guys.)
And can we just say a HUGE thank-you to everyone who has given so generously thus far – not just money, but advice, words of encouragement, and interest in Alf’s story – on behalf of all of us but especially our runner, your support means the world, and we are so glad to have you on Team Alfred!
