Chief Stew to Do Ironman Race and Fundraise for Scholarship

From Dockwalk.com

With a keen interest in sports, Chief Stewardess Carla Annas of a 65-meter motor yacht had only ever dreamed of completing an Ironman race. But after starting to cycle more last year, she realized there was nothing stopping her from making that dream a reality.

Although she’s only completed one unofficial race, she enjoyed it so much that she knew she wanted to do more but she wanted her training and racing to mean more than just a sense of accomplishment for herself.

“I decided then that I would combine my passion for sport with a fundraiser and ensure that this way, the wider community could benefit as well,” she says.

On November 27, she will do an Ironman 70.3 race — a 1.9-kilometer swim, 90.1-kilometer bike ride, and a 21.1-kilometer run — in hopes of raising R500,000.00 for a full primary school scholarship to the Stellenbosch Waldorf School in South Africa.
