Are you over 60 years? The Padca Mile JLS needs you.

The Padca Mile is now in its sixth year and we are looking for over sixties in the Midlands area to be part of the morning to make it an even bigger event on the Seniors calendar.

Padca supports people through the aging process, offering a continuum of services and care for seniors across the whole financial spectrum.

Sponsored once again by J. Leslie Smith & Company Inc, the morning boasts a load of fun activities and encourages camaradie amongst the seniors of Pietermaritzburg and surrounding areas.

The day promotes active ageing, regardless of physical ability, and every effort is made to ensure everyone is included.

In addition to the 7km , 3.5km and 1km walks around Alexandra Park, there are Giant Garden Games as well as tea garden with good music and great vibe.

This Padca JLS Mile will be held on the Goldstones field, Maritzburg College, Princess Margaret Drive, on May 16.

There is NO charge for participation, and all are welcome. Registration starts at 8 am, so the walk can begin promptly at 9.30 am.
