Organised by Greg Bertish, 40 people participated in The Great Optimist Race – celebrities, CEOs & survivors. The likes of Caleb Swanepoel, Arno Carstens, Ard Matthews, Josie Borain, Kieno Kammies (Cape Talk), Achmat Hassiem, Maryke Musson (Two Oceans Aquarium). Conn Bertish and Monwabisi Sikweyiya (Shark Spotters). From NSRI we had Dr Cleeve Robertson, our CEO, as well as Adam Klopper from Station 26 Kommetjie. Adam is an integral part of Greg's story, 15 years ago (when Adam was a baby) he lay in the bed nest to Greg while both were recovering from surgery in the cardiac unit. Cleeve is using this platform to raise awareness and to raise funds for our Pink Rescue Buoy projects. Please pledge your support here.
