Help me fundraise for SPCA Selangor, as I do the Spartan Ultra in Iceland !

My Story

Dear friends,

Several months ago, I had the bright idea to apply for the Spartan Ultra in Iceland this December. I thought I wouldn't get in, but figured it was worth a shot.

I got in and then things got real.

In 4 weeks, me and 999 others will take on a 24-hour obstacle race through Iceland's snow, wind, fog, darkness, hills, thermal lakes (what is a thermal lake ?), barbed wire, and maybe some stray Vikings.

Why ?

I have always believed that human beings are not just human and that there comes a point, which if you can push past, you open yourself to possibilities that you never thought existed. I want to know who and what I really am by taking my mind and body to a place where it has never been - and more importantly, to be fine in this place.

I also thought it would be a good opportunity to raise money for a cause very close to my heart.

In the hours of running, CrossFit, pull ups & burpees, in my quest to touch the divine, my 3 cats have consistently brought me crashing back down to earth. From demanding food at 4am to always finding a way to interrupt a stretching routine to eating my laces - they have been strangely supportive, somewhat quizzical, but always exceedingly loving.

The SPCA Selangor (Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) in Malaysia does amazing work to look after stray, mistreated, neglected, abandoned, and injured animals through inspectorate, education, spaying & neutering, and adoption programs. Their wish list includes seemingly mundane items like pet toys, cat scratching posts and old newspapers (seriously) - but, for me, putting a price on giving an animal a second shot at life is impossible. It is quite simple: more funds = longer adoption windows = less euthanasia.

If I can help give back a fraction of what animals have given me over my life, it would be incredibly meaningful. Any contribution from you is received with gratitude.

Thank you for the support and I look forward to the literal (and metaphorical) other side of this.
