Tom David (2011B) and I are two South Africans who, last year, at 24 years-of-age took the first steps of a life-changing journey. Walk with Us is the honest, gripping account of climbing the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, and walking 6 000km through six countries on US$2 a day in aid of early childhood development. In a story of extreme pain and even greater kindness, overcoming challenges and lessons learned, we have a message to share. In the words of adventurer, Kingsley Holgate, “An amazing journey”. We will be launching our book on Monday 12th November at The Mitre, Diocesan College, Bishops in Cape Town from 6PM onwards. Please RSVP below for catering purposes. Anyone willing to contribute towards the catering for the event, please contact the OD Union: [email protected], We would greatly appreciate your assistance in publicizing the book, and are both available for interviews. Kind regards, Warren Handley (2010G)
The Life Healthcare Medical 10 is a 10 kilometre fun-run/walk for health professionals. It started in 1978 - with the idea of showing that they practiced what they preached to their patients about a healthy lifestyle. For the past 12 years the venue has been the Western Province Cricket Club Sports Complex off Avenue de Mist, with the route going round the Common and then a loop up the Bishops Avenue - from where there are usually spectacular views of Devil's Peak reflecting the early morning sunshine. The field usually includes a few ODs such a Bob Baigrie (1974F), Tim Noakes (1966W) and Sydney Cullis (1961F). As it is run on a handicap basis with half a minute allowed for each year of age over 40, the "old toppies" often manage to finish towards the top of the field. Thanks to multiple sponsors the proceeds are donated to a charity - last year the Paediatric Department at Victoria Hospital was Supported. This year's event will start at 06h30 on Sunday 25th November and is open to all health professionals. For the entry form, click HERE
