THE Verulam Child and Family Welfare Society, in partnership with Golden Gate Spar and Verulam Athletics Club, will be hosting a family fun run.

The theme of the fun run is “Run to help a child”, and every cent raised through this project will be used to assist children.

The fun run takes place on September 30, commencing at 8.30 am at the Verulam Sports Ground.

Participants will have a choice of two distances — five kilometres and two kilometres.

The donation for participating in the fun run is R10 per person.

All participants for the fun run need to be at the Verulam Sports Ground by 8 am.

Verulam Athletics Club has partnered with Verulam Child Welfare and Golden Gate Spar to take care of the logistical arrangements with respect to the fun run.

As the anchor sponsor of the fun run, Golden Gate Spar will present all participants with goodie bags.

The first 1 000 runners to pass the finish line will be presented with medals.

The society is grateful to Golden Gate Spar for embracing social responsibility and positioning the fun run as a major event in Verulam’s calendar.

In order to make this event a success, the society appeals to participants to come in their numbers to Verulam Sports Ground on the day.

Participants can obtain their entry tickets at Golden Gate Spar and at the local schools.

The society also wants to thank schools that have accepted fun run tickets.

The Verulam Child and Family Welfare Society calls on all families, religious organisations, business houses, athletics clubs, the Metro Police, SAPS, teachers, children and non-governmental organisations to participate in the family fun run.
