Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!
This year, the Gratitude Run will be held at Lourensford Wine Estate on the 2nd of October. Their goal is to raise money for both Little Angles and Distance for Difference (D4D). Distance of Difference help mobilize runners, cyclists, walkers and swimmers by getting sponsorship for every kilometer they complete. With the money they raise they help provide a better future for many children.
Little Angels Children home is a safe haven for children with physical and, or, mental disabilities. Their goal is to make sure kids receive the correct medication and treatment which many parents often cannot afford.
This year, participants will have a choice of a 5 km run/walk or a team relay endurance run. It is a run of gratitude to celebrate your life, your ability and at the same time raise funds for those that wish they could run, or walk. There are no accolades, prizes or positions - just a community coming together to make a difference.
Being the inaugural event, the goal is to raise R225,000 for children in need. Entry fees start at R80.00 for adults and R50.00 for children.
So make a difference this year and run for a difference on 02 October 2016. Registration can be done online.
