RUNNERS McMillan Ziome, Jan Shaw, Judy Stewart, Anthony Albrightson and Charles Swart from Natal Carbineers Athletic Club are getting ready for The Sunflower Fund’s 56Miles4Marrow campaign.

Each runner is involved in obtaining sponsorship per mile run to raise much needed funds for The Sunflower Fund. According to Kenwyn Geyser, PR and Events Specialist in Pietermaritzburg, the Comrades Marathon is arguably the greatest ultra-marathon in the world where athletes come from all over the world to conquer the approximate 56 miles between the cities of Pietermaritzburg and Durban.

“It is both heart-warming and encouraging to see sportsmen and women eagerly supporting The Fund by participating in the activity they are so passionate about. The funds they raise allow us to recruit more donors for inclusion on the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR), bringing hope to all the patients who are so desperately searching for their perfect donor match,” said Kenwyn Geyser.

To be a sponsor or for more information, contact Kenwyn Geyser at 083 632 3224 or email kenwyn@sunflow erfund.org.za
