THE Verulam Child and Family Welfare Society is inviting members of the public, religious organisations, athletic clubs and non-governmental organisations to participate in a family fun run on 25 September at the Verulam Sports Ground.

The society in partnership with Pick n Pay and Verulam Athletic Club will be hosting the event, the aim of which is to raise funds to be used in assisting the children.

People participating in the event will have a choice of two distances - a two-kilometre or five kilometre race.

CEO of Pick n Pay Selva Nayager, is the driving force behind this event and as the anchor sponsor of the event, Pick n Pay will present participants with goodie bags and medals.

The society thanked Nayager and Pick n Pay for embracing social responsibility and positioning the fun run as a major event in Verulam’s calendar.

The society said in a statement: “In order to make this event an overwhelming success we appeal to participants to come in their numbers to Verulam Sports Ground to grace the fun run. Participants can obtain their entry tickets at the Pick n Pay Family Store in Verulam and at selected schools. We want to thank the schools that have accepted fun run tickets.

“Every participant will help the society operationalise our motto that says, ‘Your care strengthens our care in child and family care’.

“Remember your very action of obtaining a fun run ticket and participating is indicative of the care you have for the poor and downtrodden because every cent raised in this fun run will make a difference to the lives of the less fortunate in our community.”
