With no government funding, Autism Eastern Cape needs to fundraise to stay afloat and volunteering to marshall at the annual Ironman ultra-triathlon brings in much-needed funds. This year the Port Elizabeth sporting spectacle was held on Sunday, April 10, and our 37 volunteers were at their posts from 4.30am – long before dawn – until 2.30pm. Big thank you to the NMMU nursing students and other volunteers who came out so early to help us fill the roster!
