THE Msunduzi Disabled Club will be hosting the Harry Gwala Wheels and Runner event, which is a wheelchair race and fun walk-run on 15 May starting from the Imbali crossing to Wadley Stadium on the old Edendale road.

Club chairman, Lucky Bhuwane, said this year children aged between eight and 12 will participate in a two-kilometre race.

“We are excited about hosting the race for the second time. We hosted the first Harry Gwala Wheels and Runners event in 2013, which had a great turnout.

“Next year we plan to have a 15km wheelchair race, a 21km race and a fun run for the elderly,” said Bhuwane­.

He said there will be lots of prizes, and winners will receive trophys.

Fee for participating in the Harry Gwala Wheels and Runners is R70 for the 10km race, R50 for five kilometre and the children’s two kilometre race is R20.

Bhuwane is appealing for sponsorship from businesses and residents­ for the event, saying their contribution will make the event a worthwhile experience for participants.

“Msunduzi Disabled Club was started in 2013 and was officially registered in 2014.

“We currently have 30 members from Mandeni, Pietermaritzburg and Imbali.

“Our goals are to have more members from different areas and also to compete in international wheelchair races,” he said.
