WHILE many Tongaat residents decided to stay indoors during the wet weekend when the temperatures dipped once again, there was no stopping the Tongaat Panthers Athletics Club members.

The 15 committed and determined members braved the icy cold weather and took part in the 18th leg of the Thinnys League Challenge.

With just seven more legs to go for 2016, members are determined to go out and fulfill the league requirements. The Thinnys League Challenge has brought together members regularly and also encouraged and developed members who have improved their times and increased their distances.

The 19th leg of the Thinnys League Challenge takes place on 25 September at 5.30am.

The club, while promoting and developing sport amongst the youth, firmly believe that youth must have a balanced life.

To encourage them to have the same enthusiasm towards going to school as they have towards the Youth league, the pupils each received a school bag last week.

The children were thrilled upon receiving this and expressed their excitement and gratitude.

The club chairman Mr L.B. Maharaj and the executive convey their sincerest thanks to Mr Jash Maharaj, a well wisher and supporter of Panthers for securing this sponsorship. He believes that education and sport must be of equal importance in children’s lives to ensure that they receive holistic education.

The youth development programme takes place on Tuesday and Thursday in Belvedere and Seatides respectively. All youth are welcome. - Supplied.
