Transplant athletes successfully complete the 2020 Cape Town Marathon

Congratulations to Melda Ruiters (bone marrow transplant) and Bradley Arendse (kidney transplant) who participated in this year’s Cape Town Marathon on 18 October 2020.

The Cape Town Marathon was a virtual race and saw people from all over the country competing in the different distances.

Brandley Arendse successfully completed the 21 km in a time of 02:36:38. Bradley achieved this astonishing feat only 11 months post-transplant.

Melda Ruiters completed the 21 km in a fantastic time of 01:45:33.

The Western Cape Transplant Sports Association is proud of these athletes and trust to see more of our athletes on the start line of next year’s Cape Town Marathon.
