Mandela Challenge

Two friends with a heart to give back, Bruce Hughes and Mike Morris, took on the impossible to change the lives of South Africa’s most vulnerable children.

Together, and with the help of Impact Rower Stefan Terblanche, they stationary-rowed for six days, 24 hours a day, covering 1 460 km; which is equivalent to rowing from Durban to Robben Island!

Their motivation: to raise enough money to build a new home at Ingane Yami Children’s Village.  This will become home to six orphaned and vulnerable children who will be knitted into a loving family where their potential and purpose can be realised.

They have named this event; “The Ingane Yami Mandela Challenge”, with the hope that others will take on the challenge in the years to come.

Concept2 provided the rowing machine and necessary tracking equipment, while SPAR sponsored all food & sustenance for the duration of the challenge.
