The Painted Cubs are a team of 4 fifteen-year-olds – Andrea Collins, Kate Tanner, Mark Canny, and Ben Tyrrell.
We are taking part in a 60km Adventure Race in Cape St Francis on 7 November 2020.
We would like to transform the life of a child by raising funds for the Smile Foundation. The Smile Foundation assists children in need of plastic & reconstructive surgery. The average cost to repair a cleft lip or palate is R15 000 and we would like to raise enough funds to help one child, to create one more smile.
Adventure Racing includes running, paddling, cycling and orienteering.
As the Painted Cubs, we took part in the National Schools Adventure Racing Championships in 2019 and loved it. Our dedicated training and determination on the day helped us achieve first place against other school teams from around the country.
This year we’ll be racing against teens and adults and we’re up for the challenge.
