givengain imageThe Willie in question is Willie Richards, avid runner, advocate for healthy living and a man who lives by his motto: If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Since 2007 Willie has been participating in long distance duathlons and triathlons for charitable causes, each time pushing himself further.


In October 2017, Willie will be attempting his most remarkable duathlon yet, running and cycling over 1700km from Blouberg Namibia to Blouberg Cape Town, raising money to fund African Tails mass sterilization campaign #MendingMamre.  This 1700km journey is equal to 28 Olympic Marathons, that he will attempt to do in the course of three weeks, a first for any South African to attempt.  What makes Willies feat even tougher is that he spends most of his working days on a Field Support Vessel off the Angolan coast, so even his daily training routine for #whereswillie is unique.

The community of Mamre will reap the benefits from this campaign for many years to come.  For this reason Willie decided that he wanted to get involved.
