SPLISH SPLASH 2km DASH
Thank you for showing interest in our Splish Splash 2km Dash virtual swimming event.
Due to the current surge in COVID-19 infections and the restrictions on sporting events we thought it would be a great idea to get our supporters moving in the water in a safe environment. It is summer (in South Africa) and we need to keep cool while staying active.
This year, just like the past swimming events we attended, we would like to encourage you, swimmers and supporters, to create awareness around childhood cancer.
Rainbows and Smiles will be hosting a virtual swimming event in honour of their National Project Managers' son, Hanno #BraveHeart Lewis, who was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma Stage 4 in 2013. Hanno was a very compassionate little man who loved all living things, great and small. He had just learnt to swim when he sadly died in 2014 after being super brave. #Hannokind
We are honoured to partner with the Paige's Angels of Kindness family during this event. This is to celebrate the life of Paige Desaunois and her gift of happiness and kindness she bestowed on every single person she met. Paige sadly passed away in 2020 after her diagnoses with an aggressive brain tumour. #PaigesAngels #P4P #Pause4Page
Both these pure souls left a huge emptiness in many hearts and we hope to, through this event, fill that hole with so much love, support, happiness and kindness.
YOU can make a difference in the lives of youngsters still fighting! Because kidz can't fight cancer alone, and children are more precious than gold!! Help us to continue making a difference to these precious children's fight by taking part in our first ever virtual swimming event.
As the needs are continuously on the increase in the wards we rely solely on the support of kind-hearted members of the public to make donations to our cause. You may share the following link far and wide to help us achieve this: https://www.backabuddy.co.za/champion/project/splish-splash-2km
