Being a Sea Rescue Volunteer is very much like running a 100 Km or 100 Mile Trail Run. You get the privilege of experiencing some of the worlds most beautiful places, running in remote and awe inspiring areas ofter far from any form of civilisation. Out there even the best preparations and training cannot prepare you for what you might face!On these Ultra Endurance Trail Runs, you know that the race organisers are tracking your position via Satellite & GSM enabled GPS trackers. Now wouldn’t it be incredible if every Sea Rescue Volunteer could have that same piece of mind, whilst out on a Rescue Mission on a stormy night in the middle of the ocean?Such technology exists, but due to the high cost involved, it is simply not possible to equip every Crew member with such a device over night. They cost in excess of R3 000-00 each and equipping for instance the crew for our Jeffreys Bay 5,5m Rescue Vessel will amount to over R12 000-00.On the weekend of 26-28 February 2016, Rieghard Janse Van Rensburg, Jeffreys Bay station commander, will be tackling SA’s only 100 Mile [160 Km] Trail Run, the ADDO Elephant Trail Run, knowing that his location will be carefully monitored during the run.I will dedicate this run to my 100/100 campaign to raise the R12 000-00 needed to equip the Rescue Crew of Station 37 with much needed AIS MOB [man over board] devices.If you would like to support Rieghard please visit his GivenGain page by clicking here.If you donate R100 or more, you are in line to win a 48' Samsung LED Smart TV valued at over R8 000-00, kindly donated by True Technologies!Rieghard in action raising funds for Station 37 Jeffreys Bay Rieghard in action raising funds for Station 37 Jeffreys BayAn AIS MOB devise An AIS MOB devise
