Today’s the day - the 50th Anniversary Two Oceans and Dave’s 50th consecutive run to help raise funds for our African Penguin Relocation Project. And what an incredible journey it has been.
In the past 50 days, Dave has smashed a jaw-dropping 2800 km completing 50 Two Oceans ultra marathons in 50 consecutive days. In the wise words of one of our backers, Karin Wilson: “What you are doing has blown my mind. On behalf of the penguins, thanks for being a nutter”.
But he’s not the only champ. Together, with your help, we have raised a total of R122 000 towards our African Penguin Relocation Project. The penguins, Dave, and all of us at BirdLife South Africa, salute everyone who has followed this crazy journey and helped make this project a reality. Flipper fives all round.
Dave’s race might be over, but our race to relocate the African Penguin is just beginning. Stay posted for more news and updates as we embark on the next phase of our project. Donations are still open - join us in preserving and protecting our favourite African wobbler.
