And so it is finally launched! My podcast! Subscribe, download and listen… IT’S FREE!!!!
I am SO proud to announce that I am now officially an OLLI ambassador and will be spending 2020 (and beyond) running and campaigning and doing awesome and fun stuff for rhino conservation in collaboration with Wayne and Nikki Bolton, the founders of the One Land Love It Foundation (OLLI) that was established in 2015 and formalised in 2018 as a non profit company (NPC).
I’ve always been in awe and totally motivated and inspired by the tireless efforts the Boltons put into conservation and in Wayne’s sheer tenacity as he cycled around 8000km over two self-funded expeditions creating a “frontier” of conservation and linking numerous SANPARKS and private game reserves with his two expeditions.
My aim will not only be to raise funds for OLLI and the great work they do but also to “move from caring to doing” and making my running miles matter by actually helping to spread awareness and educate people with regards to conservation, the issues faced, the very real atrocities that is taking place and what we can do to help as ordinary citizens. Because AMAZING things happen when ordinary people start caring and doing as a collective…
I will be attempting the Addo 100 mile race in less than 4 weeks and this will be the “official” start of my quest as an OLLI ambassador and collaborator and there will be many initiatives following the 100 mile race right up to World Rhino Day and the #OLLIMove initiatives planned for and around World Rhino Day plus an exciting running expedition by me… but more to follow soon…
So, my challenge to all of you is simple:
- Donate at least $1 (R15) to the awesome OLLI Foundation. (ALL donations go directly to OLLI)
- Start moving! Whether you run, walk, crawl, dance, jump, climb… it doesn’t matter – just MOVE.
Remember folks, it all starts with YOU. You are key in the conservation quest. Join me as a fellow Wildlife Warrior and let’s all move from “caring to doing”.
Until next time – remember to make your miles matter.
Yours in conservation goals
