Sandile needs your tweets…

Please use your tweet for a great cause.

Sandile has been challenged to run 1.6km next Sunday at the Comrades Ultra Marathon by Nedbank. What’s so special about 1.6km when everyone else is running almost 90km? 

Here is what’s so special about this particular stretch of 1.6km:

  • Sandile had his legs amputated and will be using artificial limbs
  • The 1.6km that he will run will be made up of all the tweets of encouragement individuals like you and I send

How can you support:

  • Go over to Twitter
  • Login
  • And send Sandile a message of encourage using these hashtags 
  • #GoSandile #NedbankGreenMile
  • Include @PhambiliSandile

Watch a small clip from Sandile here.

Thank you πŸ™‚

I started the year with an 11km run on the very first day of 2015 through the Botanical gardens in Pretoria and along the side streets. A year back, I would have told you to go run it yourself, instead this year I was the one chasing hubby and son into the car so we arrived in Pretoria on time. Continue reading
