Running for Gian

Deon & Lerika du Plessis are the proud parents of Gian and are part of the Popcorn Kidz Tutor Centre.  This is your opportunity to help them raise funds for Popcorn Kidz.

"We are the proud parents of the most amazing boy, Gian,  who was diagnosed with autism in 2011. We are fortunate to be part of Popcorn Kidz Tutor centre based in Northcliff Johannesburg, where our son receives 1 to 1 turoring to help him cope with everyday life. We are running the 2017 Old Mutual half marathon on behalf of Popcorn Kidz to help them raise funds to continue their amazing work to help our specials kids, but also running it for Gian, for his courage, hard work and to show him that, although this journey is tough, we are there for him every step of the way! With Hope, Faith & Love we will be victorious!  " - Deon & Lerika
