A RESIDENT from Mpumalanga, Lawrence Savage will be running the Soweto Marathon this Sunday, November 3 to raise funds for Letcee’s Play-Able Pickup Project.

Savage, who has strong ties with the Greytown community and Letcee, appealed to residents to support him.

“I will be running the full Soweto Marathon next Sunday. I am raising funds for Letcee through the GivenGain Foundation. Anyone is welcome to contribute.

“My connection to Letcee is through my wife, Annika, who worked there until last month when we relocated to Iswepe, Mpumalanga.

“I am planning to run this marathon as a qualifier for next year’s Comrades Marathon, which would be my third. Any time under four hours would be a really nice achievement, especially in such a big race as the Soweto Marathon, also known as the People’s Marathon,” said Savage.

The money Savage raises will be used to support and improve the Play-Able Pickup Project, which aims to serve children with disabilities as well as guide and serve their families and communities.

This is a project with a great cause and we are very grateful and appreciative of Lawrence for choosing Letcee and this project.

Residents can head over to the Facebook page GivenGain for additional details on the project and other initiatives being run.

Letcee founding director Mary James said they were ecstatic and the centre has rallied behind Savage to support him.
