Ivan Zimmermann in Gonder, Ethiopia – 3000km Down, 9000km More to Go

Johannesburg, South Africa, February 12, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Tonya Khoury, the MD of media monitoring company, ROi Africa, has the latest update on the progress of actor Ivan Zimmermann, on the 12 000 km Tour d’Afrique. “Yesterday it was one month since Ivan departed from Cairo on the Tour d’Afrique to raise 12 000 tins of food for Can-a-Kilo,” she says.

“Ivan is set to arrive in Cape Town on 9 May as part of the Leaders Never Quit campaign, which is supported by ROi Africa, the South African Institute for Chartered Accountants (SAICA) and Sage Pastel,” she adds.

Ivan said yesterday, “I arrived two days ago in Gonder, Ethiopia, as a broken man. The first shower I had in eight days could not wash away any weary emotions. It could only wash away the dirt from my sticky skin. I have now covered more than 3,000km of the 12,000km journey and so far I happen to be in third place overall.”

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, a dream that has become a reality. A dream that will test me to my limits, but also a dream that will show the world that leaders never quit,” adds Ivan.

Ivan will be available for interviews, for available times, contact ruan@tinmandigital.co.za / 012-643 0436.
