Take part: 226 kilometers for iThemba
Lufthansa flight attendant Riitta Knodt dedicates her participation at Ironman Frankfurt to the help alliance project in South Africa
True to the motto “Meter by meter, stone by stone”, Riitta Knodt is taking part in the Ironman in Frankfurt on 30 June and is collecting donations for the school extension in the help alliance project iThemba. In one of the poorest townships in Cape Town
help alliance in the iThemba primary school in Capricorn near Muizenberg currently provides around 210 children with an excellent education. When all construction stages have been completed in a few years, the primary school will offer space for 700 girls and boys. And this is urgently needed, because more than 2,000 children still live without a school place in the socially and economically disadvantaged suburb of the South African tourist metropolis.
Sport for the good cause
Riitta Knodt has been a Lufthansa flight attendant for 33 years – she has seen the world. “But for me, Cape Town is the most beautiful city in the world. My commitment to iThemba at the Ironman in Frankfurt brings my three heartfelt concerns together: Children, sport and my favourite city”.
