He has gone on to become one of the most well-known professional cricketers in South African and has still not forgotten his roots.

JP Duminy started the JP21 Foundation in 2015, focusing on youth development at primary schools, through cricket clinics and a league.

“[I was inspired to start the foundation] through values instilled in me, to always give back, to make sure we remain humble in our own successes and achievements.

For a long time I would give back in my time and resources to other worthy causes; [this] led me to believe that it was time to start my own foundation and give a meaningful contribution, by making this foundation a passion,” says Duminy.

From the age of five, Duminy started his cricket career playing in the streets of Mitchell’s Plain and Strandfontein.

“My parents had more belief in me than I had; that I could make a career out of the game. My success is certainly not a one-man show. Teammates, coaches, parents, my wife and faith, all play a huge role in where I am today,” says Duminy.

For the past three years, the foundation has also partnered with the Mitchell’s Plain Titans in presenting the annual JP21 Mitchell’s Plain Titans race, already in its 11th year.

“[The race] was about community involvement. Whilst the foundation works in the primary school space, it’s important for us to engage the community at large, by showcasing our work and raising awareness and inspiring people to stay active,” says Duminy.

“I come from this community, my family lives here, it’s close to my heart, and we get to showcase Mitchell’s Plain to other parts of the Western Cape and nationally. Yes, we use cricket to create positive environments but the real essence is community development and this race helps us in our endeavours in achieving that.”

This year, you will see Duminy lace up his running shoes to participate in the 5km fun run. “I’ll run with kids and some of my friends and family in the 5km run. I will also open the 10km race. I am excited to see the numbers and it’s great to see how the race has grown over the years,” says Duminy.

Reaching their goal of growing the race last year, they hope to see at least 3000 runners this year.

Avid runners and novices alike can tie their laces and try their hand at the 21km, 10km or 5km race on Saturday 24 November­.

This year, the race is also a league race

Partners include the City of Cape Town, Western Cape Department of Arts, Culture and Sport, Boxer Superstores, Total Sports, Peninsula Beverages, Smile 90.4fm and Liberty Promenade Mall. The Mitchell’s Plain Titans AC will be assisted by Khayelitsha AC as marshals for the event.

City Vision is the official media partner.

Online entries close on Sunday 18 November with manual entries open until the morning of the event. Entry to the 21km race is R90 for licensed runners and R145 for unlicensed runners. Entry to the 10km race is R50 for licensed runners and R80 for unlicensed runners. Entry to the 5km race costs R20. The 21km and 10km races will start at Glendale High School and end at Rocklands Sports Field, while the 5km race will start and end at Rocklands Sports Field. The races are open to all. The event aims to celebrate the history and culture of the area.
