Cape Town cartoonist Tegan Phillips has been chosen to take part in a New Zealand epic.
Phillips will swim, cycle and run 2 253 kilometres around New Zealand's South Island to raise funds for an international charity 'World Bicycle Relief'.
World Bicycle Relief is a charity that empowers people who face mobility barriers by giving them bicycles.
Phillips is also the brains behind a webcomic called Unclipped Adventure.
She dropped her law degree and her parents left their jobs to go on an adventure and cycle the whole of Africa. After a year of adventure her parents went back to work but she continued on her adventure trails.
I liked it too much and I wanted to make it into my full time thing... adventures and cartoons.— Tegan Phillips, Cartoonist
In her quest for funding for her adventures she came across a company that offered to pay for the best imagined adventure that would impress them. She entered and now she will be going to New Zealand to make her imagined adventure come to life while raising 250 bicycles for children who walk more than 10 km to school.
So far she has raised R45 000.
