My story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page.</p> <p>I met the Chairman of Malaika Kids on a flight from Amsterdam to London in December 2010. He was just returning from Tanzania to see how the construction work of the new Orphan Village was going (hosting up to 320 orphans). He told me the story of the organisation, the way they operated, etc..and a week later I was sponsoring my first Malaika Kid. &nbsp;</p> <p>This was a start but I decided, I could do more. I am racing an Ironman in 12 months. I did my first Ironman in 2010 with a time of 11:38. <strong>The challenge is to race sub 11:00. In the event I do not reach my objective I will double the amount of the total money raised.</strong></p> <p>You can follow my journey to the Ironman Western Australia, Dec 9th 2012 in the blogposts below.</p> <p>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p>
