Three Cousins namely Brenton de la Harpe, David Prinsloo and Russell Weare are the sons of three sisters who were all affected by cancer at different stages in their lives. Two sisters succumbed to the disease, while the third (the youngest of the three) is a breast cancer survivor and member of Reach for Recovery in East London. The three men decided to run the Comrades marathon in 2019 in honour of their mothers as well as all people affected by cancer. They are especially grateful for the work that Reach for Recovery does and have chosen to donate all funds raised through their project to the East London branch of this organization.
Russel has just recently completed the Two Oceans Marathon while Brenton will be participating in the Lewa Conservancy Safaricom Marathon in Kenya in aid of the Tusk conservation initiative on 30th June 2018. We wish these gentleman all the best with their training as well as fundraising initiatives. Please support this project by donating online on the Reach for Recovery website at www.reachforrecovery.org.za. Follow their progress and on https:m.facebook.com/Three-Cousins-Comrades-2019
