We are four Grade 8 swimmers from The Wykeham Collegiate. Our names are Emma, Ella, Georgie and Keira.
We will collectively be swimming 8 miles over 2 days to raise funds for some charities that are close to our hearts .
We have all realised already that this dreadful disease can tear away beautiful, kind souls no matter how old and, devastatingly, no matter how young. As we take part in this Swim For Lives challenge to raise funds to help in the search for a cure, we will be thinking of them with every stroke we take. We are also all wanting to play our part in helping the communities who are involved in the Rhino for Future Generations program.
The Charities are :
- HAPPY BUNDLES
- SAVE THE RHINO
- PINK DRIVE
We’d love you to be part of our team, by pledging an amount now to our campaign.
Swim for Lives – Midmar Mile Schools Charity Relay Challenge
Swim for Lives – aQuellé Midmar Mile Schools Charity Relay Challenge
Our lives have all been impacted in some way by either Childhood Cancer and/or Breast Cancer and so this is an exciting challenge for us girls to gain a unique sense of purpose by doing something for others through our swimming.
- Emma and Ella recently lost beloved grandparents to cancer.
- A dear friend of Georgie’s, a beautiful young girl, aged just 9 years old, tragically passed away after such a brave fight. Her laughter is missed by so many.
- Keira’s godmothers, who were bubbly, lovable twin sisters, lost the fight, both only in their early 40s, leaving behind their 4 young children.
- Both Keira’s and Georgie’s mothers are survivors of breast cancer, and we are eternally grateful for every day we are granted to spend together.
As children of Africa, we want to help the communities who are involved in the Rhino for Future Generations. No-one who has seen these magnificent, prehistoric animals in their full glory in the wild can fail to be moved by their plight and the sad realisation that they too could soon disappear from our planet. We want to see these Rhinos thriving in our land and hope, one day, to watch our own children’s eyes dance with delight and awe when they first lay eyes on a wild Rhino in the African bush.
Our TWC team also extends this challenge to other schools to play their part in raising funds for the charities who partner with the aQuellé Midmar Mile.Let’s fight for for these worthy causes together.
This is activating generosity through swimming at it’s best!
