The 3rd Journey for Change successfully completed.
The OCAL Global team, inclusive of a crutch runner, a hearing-impaired runner and a hand cyclist, began their gruelling non-stop 10-day, 24 hour, 2200km Journey for Change run on May 10 from Totalsports Forest Hill in Centurion and passed through the Kalahari on their way to Cape Town.
“We started in Centurion as complete strangers and finished in Cape Town as a family, a family who endured every single challenge possible.
"Sore bodies, tired legs but incredibly proud and with full hearts!” said OCAL Global founder Nicolene Anley.
“We are grateful for the support of all our sponsors, and thank Totalsports for supplying kit for the team and for their R120 000 donation.” OCAL Global Journey for Change 2018!
A day crew starting from 9am to 9pm,and a night crew going from 9pm to 9am; who ran through the last night to the start line of the Cape Town 12.
Children with mental and physical disabilities were the true winners, when the Totalsports OCAL Global team crossed the finish line at the FNB 12 OneRun in Cape Town on Sunday, completing an epic 2200km fundraising journey.
"WE DIDN'T DO THIS FOR OURSELVES, BUT FOR THE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY DIFFERENTLY ABLED KIDS OF THE NORTHERN CAPE WE HAVE PROFILED."
As founder of this Journey for Change and OCAL GLOBAL, I would like to say a massive thank you to all 11 other team members, the film crew and base camp, the sponsors, the love and all of the support.
Family and friends, for your thoughts, your prayers, your messages. It's what kept us going! 2018 Journey for Change team, you are all Superheroes in my eyes.
Thank you for taking 10 days out of your lives to be part of something EPIC.
The OCAL Global team were reunited with Sean Kristafor at the FNB 12 OneRun. Kristafor, founder of the Black Insomnia Coffee Company and former general manager of GNC, part of the Clicks Group, completed the OCAL Global journey in 2017 as an able bodied runner, later suffering a stroke leaving him paralysed on one side of his body. He is undergoing recovery therapy and the OCAL Global runners pushed him in a wheelchair to the finish line.
