In the early hours on Saturday the 6th of October, The Message staff along with 58 activists met at the bottom of Devil’s Peak in preparation of our 4th annual Triple Challenge Fundraiser.

It was a beautiful day coupled by excitement and anticipation as we began our attempt at completing a three mountain (Devils’ Peak, Table Mountain and Lion’s Head) climb in one day in order to raise funds to aid the mission work we do with young people from hard to reach and neglected urban areas in and around Cape Town! In addition each staff member and activists were challenged to raise R2500 towards the hike. We raised up to R156 000!

It took me 11 hours to complete the challenge and the sense of accomplishment and joy far outweighed the pain my joints were feeling.
I met inspirational men and women who were changed through the great work The Message does. I was honored to be part of this challenge and will definitely be back next year.
Thank you for the life changing work you do
