MIKE Parasaramen from the Umkomaas Athletic Club will be running the Comrades Marathon on 29 May as a fund-raiser for Khanya Hospice.

Parasaramen is challenging other athletes and club members to support Hospice in this manner.
Anyone also wanting to run Comrades for Hospice, should contact Hospice CEO, Neil McDonald.

“Khanya Hospice offers free palliative nursing care to people with life-threatening diseases and support to their families. We are not government funded and have to arrange their own events and fund-raising.
Parasaramen, a man with a “heart for the people”, knows the good and humble work the Hospice nursing staff do in the area, but more so, the amount of patients that has been seen by Hospice nursing staff have increased in the past year,” McDonald said.

He added that unfortunately, many people contact them and come onto the Hospice programme at a late stage of the disease.

“People must understand that we care for the living – we are trained to do pain and symptom control. Once diagnosed, people should contact Hospice on 039 973 1782/0277 or 083 597 8985 or hospice@ scottnet.co.za,” said McDonald­. - Supplied
