Steve Black's Epic Run for Lee Jay

22nd August – 12 September 2009

Lee Jay (11/09/86)
A beautiful 22 year old who was in a shocking car accident in May 2007, when a speeding taxi jumped a red light which destroyed her vehicle and left her with a broken neck, and is now a quadriplegic.

Whilst Medical Aid is assisting, there are soaring costs for her to obtain treatment and rehabilitation to enable her to regain the use of her limbs, and to keep on fighting her brave battle.

To help raise funds, Steve Black is running from Underberg to Knysna, a distance of over 1100km. His run will pass along the South Coast, the Wild Coast, and on to Knysna for this great cause: to help Lee Jay regain her life.

Steve was joint winner with Andre Erasmus of the 2009 Wild Coast Ultra Marathon in a record time of 38hrs:25:45 for the 270km run. Shattering the existing record by over 7 hours! You can read more about Steve's accomplishments here:

    This is no scam. I have faith in any cause someone like Steve (who at 54 looks like a (sometime, perhaps) hard livin' 35 year old) is endorsing. No offense. Isn't he Awesome?! (Thanks Steve, for all you're doing.) Also this request was forwarded by Lee Jay's Mom, Helen Gooderson, and I just think: if it were me... or one of my loved ones... You don't even have to dig deep. Just forward this to every (oh wait... I've heard that before)... "Let's make this viral!" Everyone contribute ten, or a hundred bucks, or so, and help make someone's life worth living! Thank you.
