Every year we give running shoes to the eGamalethu Running Group in the Natal Midlands of South Africa.
This year we were involved in the presentation of the shoes which was as part of an initiative of the Progressive Professional Forum of South Africa, in honouring the Mandela Day call “to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better”. The focus of the day, aligning to the President’s State of the Nation Address, was to Clean South Africa.
The theme of the day was therefore : HEALTHY PLANET AND HEALTHY PEOPLE. The activities for the day included the picking up of litter and environmental awareness with motivational speakers from the sporting fraternity, promoting healthy and active living. Mayor Mbali Myeni made the official speech and presented gifts to people from the community.
A great day was had by all.
