The Midmar Mile (www.midmarmile.co.za) is a swimming race held annually in February at the Midmar Dam north of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Pre-Covid approximately 17,000 swimmers descended from all over the world on Midmar Dam to swim the largest outdoor race there is.
Over the last 20+ years I have swum the Midmar Mile a total of 35 times sometimes once on the designated weekend, mostly twice and occasionally three times.
In almost one month from now on Saturday and Sunday February 12th and 13th I will be swimming the Midmar Mile again, for my 36th and 37th times in memory of Dr Arthi Ramkissoon my friend from school.
I will be raising funds for scholarships for students to Waterford Kamhlaba www.waterford.sz, my Alma Mata, which is very close to my heart.
Would you be willing to sponsor me?
