Thabiso Sikwane, an SAfm Current Affairs presenter and budding athlete, will not be deterred by pregnancy from hitting the road for charity.

Sikwane, who is three months pregnant, said nothing would stop her from taking part in the marathon.

"I am in hospital, but I will be out [today] to prepare for the marathon. This time around I will take a shorter distance," she said. "My doctor said I could run the five kilometre distance," she confidently said.

Sikwane will join other runners on April 6, such as 5FM's DJ Koula, to pound the road to raise funds for Merck Rising Stars, a charity project that supports underprivileged children who wish to take part in sport.

Last year Sikwane impressed many when she took part in the popular, gruelling Comrades Marathon. Although she did not win, she says the experience was fulfilling, especially because she was doing it for charity.

The talk show host added that if it was not for the pregnancy, she would run the Comrades Marathon this year.

The Slow-Mag® marathon, now in its 16th year, will help generate financial support for the development of the Merck Rising Stars soccer team, comprising children from the Tembisa area, all under the age of 16.
