On the 22nd September 2018, the Pietermaritzburg & District Community Chest had an opportunity to distribute pre-owned running shoes to deserving runners at the Duzi Park Run which is a 5km run held every Saturday starting at 8:00am.
The event takes place at Campsdrift/Cricket Oval in Pietermaritzburg. Special thanks and appreciation to the Comrades Marathon Association for facilitating the generous donation of 82 pairs of pre-owned running shoes from Comrades runners in Brazil. These shoes were lovingly handed out on the day with big smiles and hugs from the beneficiaries.
The Community Chest is an officially recognised Amabeadibeadi charity which benefits from the Comrades Marathon Association’s fundraising initiatives.
