NO stranger to a sporting challenge, Durban based stalwart of The Cows Gordon Reid will be donning his black and white furry cow suit to take on the unique Go-Chi-Mor hike on the Wild Coast from 4 to 6 August to raise funds for the Childhood Cancer Foundation CHOC.

Reid, an avid runner, cyclist, swimmer and paddler who has taken part in the Comrades, Midmar Mile, Tour Durban and the Dusi Canoe Marathon as part of his decade long drive to help children battling with cancer and their families, heard about the two day event and couldn’t turn his back on the opportunity.

“The event was run last year for the first time by the best friend of my best man,” said Reid. “It sounded like such good fun, so when they were looking for a charity to support, I jumped at the opportunity. That’s what The Cows is all about. We raise money for CHOC with other like-minded athletes, and it sounds like the vibe at this event will be fantastic.”

The event is a two day hike or run along the coast, starting at Gonubie and overnighting at Chintsa, before finishing at Morgan Bay the next day.

Reid said he wasn’t worried about the challenge of taking part in the furry Cow suit, which is notoriously hot. “Who knows, if it is chilly, I will be the warmest person there,” he quipped.

Reid will channel all the money raised to CHOC, which supports CHOC houses in the Eastern Cape.
