Positive Heroes is proud to announce that three runners will be competing in the forthcoming ultra-marathons, Two Oceans on 11 April (56 kms) and Comrades 24 May (89 kms). Evelina Tshabalala, Masibulele Gcabo and Willie Engelbrecht have been selected to represent Positive Heroes in these most difficult of marathons.
These three inspirational people are showing, that by taking part in ultra marathons, that people living with HIV can achieve fantastic goals with the right determination and positive attitude to life.
One of the future objectives is for an educational campaign to run concurrently to these races so that “race for life” can be a translated litterally by teaching people living with HIV the importance of living life to the full. Making the necessary life-changes helps ensure that people with HIV, along with the right diet, exercise, medication (ARV’s), lifestyle and positive attitude, can really make a difference to quality of life.
The team is powered by Discovery Health and sports equipment provided by Nike.
