A man living with a disability began yet another gruelling 2 200 kilometre journey from Pretoria to Cape Town on crutches.
Ipeleng Khunou, 31, is part of a team of 12 people participating in the One Chance at Life (Ocal) 2018 journey for change initiative that aims to raise awareness for people living with disabilities and to focus on their abilities.
Khunou, who recently defied the odds to run the Two Oceans Marathon, said he was thrilled to be taking part in the journey.

“I had been looking for more platforms to raise disability awareness,” he said.
Khunou, who hails from Rustenburg in North West, was diagnosed with a rare congenital disorder called septooptic dysplasia at birth.
He has to make use of crutches as the condition affects his eyesight and balance.

Khunou has also participated in the Soweto Marathon, Om Die Dam and Wally Hayward, among other road races.
According to the Ocal Global website, it will take them 10 days to reach their destination. This means that they will arrive in Cape Town on Sunday.

Their route started in Pretoria and made its way through the Kalahari close to the Namibian border and Cederberg Mountains and will culminate at the start-line of the FNB OneRun in Cape Town.
