As many of you may know by now, our very own Irafaan Abrahams successfully completed the New York Marathon on Sunday 6th November 2011.
The anticipation and nerves leading up to and at the start of the race, the excitement, the exhilaration and his progress during the race was just unbearable, to say the least. Yes, we were kept up to date, with kilometer by kilometer updates on Facebook by Irafaan himself. He in turn was flooded with messages of support from fellow members of LOA Itheko AC and friends from South Africa during the race. He finished the New York Marathon in a time of 5h23. What a brilliant performance?
I am sure you will all join me in extending our hearty CONGRATULATIONS to Irafaan on a superb effort. Let us not forget that in the process he has achieved one of his lifelong dreams. Through his efforts he has also contributed to the upliftment and development of many school children as well as raised funds for various charities.
