THE annual Padca Mile, hosted from the Goldstones field of Maritzburg College, was once again a thoroughly enjoyable event for senior citizens from Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands.

There were three distances to choose from - 1km, 3.5km or 7km with over 450 senior citizens taking part. Padca’s vision is to create awareness around the importance of keeping fit and having fun and to attract more seniors for next year’s event.

Margie Jenkins, daughter of one participant, shared her appreciation for this event: “Congratulations Padca, J Leslie Smith and sponsors. What a great day you gave all the ‘Golden Oldies’ today – and what fun for the younger generations of runners to be able to cheer on our parents and grandparents for a change. Well organised, and great fun. Hope you continue well into the future with this excellent outreach! Thanks to all involved.”

J Leslie Smith andamp; Co Inc, a firm of attorneys with offices in PMB and Howick, was this year’s main sponsor.

“A huge thank you to the JLS team for their generous sponsorship, personal touch and involvement on the day,” said Hillary Mumford, Padca CEO.

Crystal Dellar from J Leslie Smith andamp; Co also commented. “We were privileged to be Padca’s partner in this wonderful event – the Padca Mile.” With all this enthusiasm and commitment from everyone involved we are already looking forward to next year’s annual PADCA Mile.
