South Coast Hospice hosted a 5km fun run/walk at the TB Molefe stadium in Gamalakhe on Saturday.
Sadly, the fund-raising event was very poorly attended.
However, it was a great opportunity for South Coast Hospice to practice for the Hospice Refreshment Stand at Comrades 2019, taking place on 9 June.
Hospice South Africa is, once again, privileged to one of the six Amabeadibeadi Charities.
The winner of the fun run was Emmanuel Thusi, from Ugu Athletics Club, who attended the event after getting off night shift duty.
A disappointed BT King, fund-raising co-ordinator of South Coast Hospice, said, “Many hours of planning were put into the event, and over 30 staff members and members of the public volunteered their time to assist on the day.”
“As an NPO, these fund-raising events are crucial to creating awareness and keeping our doors open. Thank you to all our staff, volunteers and sponsors.”
South Coast Hospice will be hosting a number of fun fundraisers this month and community members are urged to come out in numbers for these events.
This coming Saturday, a walk will be held in Izotsha in memory of Helen Mostert, a beloved friend and fundraiser of South Coast Hospice.
Join South Coast Hospice for an exclusive screening of the move Book Club on the 10th.
On the 13th, the staff will be taking Dr Andre Nell “hostage”. The Hospice hero will be locked in “ball and chain” at Shelly Centre, where locals will have to bail him out through pledges and bail money.
Funds raised will go towards a new wheelchair for Dr Nell, who’s been a cornerstone of South Coast Hospice for decades.
