On 27 April, 2017, 12 strangers united under the OCAL Global banner on a journey from Cape Town to Pretoria. Over 10 days and nights, they travelled 2 257km through the heart of South Africa in a 24-hour, non-stop relay. That culminated in them starting the Wings for Life World Run on 7 May 2017, at Supersport Park in Pretoria, running for those who can’t.
The team will be made up of 10 able-bodied runners and two hand cyclists. Each member were united by a singular cause – to challenge the global belief system around disability. OCAL Global's Mission and Aim is to ensure that wthey create a physical and active environment for Differently Abed children, one school at a time. The learners that attend Tembaletu LSEN School (School for Learners with Special Education
Needs). will be part of OCAL’s ongoing journey and commitment, knowing how crucial education is in bridging the inequalities that are present within this nation of ours.
