Atacama Crossing – How to follow me during the race

Greetings from San Pedro in Chile.

Tomorrow is the start of the 2015 Atacama Crossing. After many months of training and preparations, it’s time to take on the mighty Atacama Desert.

The 11th edition of the Atacama Crossing – 250km over 6 stages / 7 days – will be held from 4-10 October 2015 in the Atacama Desert in Chile.

The countdown to the Atacama Crossing continues…

——————————-

I am dedicating my participation in the Atacama Crossing to the work of The Sunflower Fund in South Africa. The Fund’s vision is to give all South Africans diagnosed with leukaemia and other life-threatening blood disorders the chance of life, irrespective of their race and financial circumstances.

The Sunflower Fund’s slogan is “Share a Little, Save a Life”, and we can all make a contribution by either registering as a potential bone marrow stem cell donor or making a donation in support of its work.

I’m excited about supporting The Sunflower Fund and invite you to join me on this journey.

Follow updates on my blog, Facebook and Twitter, and via The Sunflower Fund’s various online platforms.
