Sports enthusiast Cameron Bellamy is planning to cycle, swim and row for thousands of miles to raise funds for some of the world's poorest children.
The 29-year-old will be leading his team in three endurance events which form the Ubunye Challenge in a bid to raise £250,000 to support children in Africa.
During this challenge the South African will be cycling 1,407km from Land's End to John O'Groats with his 12-person team, followed by a 35km swim across the English Channel, and finally a 4,727km row across the Atlantic Ocean.
The team are hoping to break a number of records including the first South Africans/Zimbabweans to independently row an ocean and the first South African/Zimbabwean women to ever row an ocean.
The challenge has partnered with the Africa Foundation in the UK and The Angus Gillis Foundation in South Africa to raise funds for communities in rural areas.
This is not Cameron's first sporting challenge. He has previously represented South Africa in rowing as well as cycling across China, Central Asia and India.
Cameron and his team will be setting off on the Ubunye Challenge on April 29.
