He runs with his heart, and the Community Chest is proud of the great heart that is Mike Cowling. Professor Cowling has been an active member for the Comrades Marathon Association for nearly two decades. His legs will carry him to his 42nd Comrades Marathon finish on Sunday, 9 June but his heart beats for the children of Selby Msimang Primary School in Edendale.

The good Professor has been running for the Community Chest which has been selected as one of six Official Comrades Charities. Two years ago Mike raised a whopping R50000 which went towards the building of 2 classrooms at Selby Msimang School, one of the ECD's (Early Childhood Development Centre) supported by the Community Chest.

In honour of his 42nd Comrades, Mike is aiming to fundraise R42000, the proceeds of which will go towards the nourishment and education of 6000 children. Please help Mike make this magnanimous dream come true by clicking on the following link
