"What's this #HeroesWalk I keep hearing about?"
Friday 30th September 2011 marks the start of the GoPro Heroes Walk. This +/- 150km casual stroll along the coastline kicks off in Cape Town and 3 days later culminates at the Two Oceans Whale Festival in Hermanus.

Why not! Is my first response. However we do have something special in mind and we are supporting the I AM WATER Ocean Conservation Trust. Click the link and read up about the education and awareness projects they get involved with. All in the name of saving one of our greatest natural resources on this planet.

I will also be taking the opportunity to pressure test a few pairs of New Balance shoes. One of them being the new barefoot Minimus range which I've been Parkour testing over the last few days.

I will be in the company of the great Ray D. Chaplin. Ray has already walked from Cape Town to Beit Bridge before, and has lost count of the amount of times he's cycled from Cape Town to Johannesburg. He once did it on a single speed bicycle with backpedal brakes!!!). Click his link to read up on the next major adventure which involves circumnavigating the globe via both poles on human power only!!!

We will also be joined by adventure newbie Dewald De Jager from GoPro South Africa, who will be filming the whole adventure and earning his adventure noddy badge with us.

"How can I get involved?"
1) Follow and Tweet us using the #HeroesWalk tag
2) Join us on the walk

For every R10 000 we raise, one of us will walk in a sea inspired costume!
