Over the past 30 years David has been involved in the restaurant and hospitality industry in South Africa, owning a string of successful fine dining restaurants. After all those years in the kitchen, one day someone left the kitchen door open and he bolted to follow his dream of becoming an extreme adventurer. Since this journey began he has run The Great Wall of China (4 200km in 93 days), run the entire coastline of South Africa (3 300km in 80 days), paddled from Africa to Madagascar (500km in
12 days), run the Island of Madagascar south to north (2 700km in 67 days) and run the entire length of India (4 008km in 93 days). Each of these missions was embarked on in aid of David’s charity, the Miles for Smiles Foundation. Funds are raised to provide corrective surgery for children born with cleft lips and palates. To date, funds raised through David’s missions have given over 1 000 children the God-given right to a smile.
