Theunis Van Niekerk - False Bay Solo Paddle

The Unicorn chats to a remarkable man, who did a remarkable thing, for a remarkable cause ….

Theunis Van Niekerk  undertook a solo paddle from Gordon’s Bay to Fish Hoek. This was a personal challenge for the benefit of breast cancer awareness, the “I love boobies foundation.” Theunis is an ambassador for this foundation and he is committed to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. Driven by the fact that his mom passed away when she was 50 as a result of breast cancer, he decide that when he turned 50, he would paddle across False Bay in order to raise awareness for breast cancer and the fact that early detection can save lives. Last year he celebrated his 50th birthday, but due to Covid restrictions he was unable to undertake the paddle and it was delayed until last weekend.
