#StandUp for education, meals and smiles

Chris Bertish, the famous big wave surfer and extreme stand-up paddle-boarder (SUP), is on his quest to SUP 7000km across the Atlantic ocean to raise funds for The Signature of Hope Trust, The Lunchbox Fund and Operation Smile.

The charities stand to benefit from the R20 million that he hopes to raise.

Chris Bertish is currently completing the groundbreaking SUP Crossing, the main objective of which, is to cross the Atlantic Ocean on a stand-up paddle board, solo and unsupported to redefine what’s possible and to create a sustainable legacy by raising funds for: Signature of Hope Trust, Operation Smile SA and The LunchBox Fund. With a target of raising over 20 million rand, the goal is to make the entire project a completely self-sustainable initiative via an Annuity fund specifically set up and managed by the Carrick Wealth Investment Committee to establish recurring income for the beneficiaries. Working in conjunction with the beneficiaries, funds will be released on a regular basis, balancing operational requirements with capital protection.

If you'd like to donate, SMS #STANDUP to 42146. Funds donated will go directly towards to SUP Crossing.

We want to raise awareness about this incredible journey all in the aim of raising money to change the lives of as many children as possible.

Craig Featherby, CEO Carrick Wealth
