HELD on the Maritzburg College Barns Field, the sixth Padca JLS Mile was enjoyed by senior citizens from in and around PMB on May 16.

The day promoted active aging and regardless of physical ability, everyone was included. In addition to the 7,3km and one-kilometre walks, there were health checks, music, laughter, giant garden games, chatting between new and old friends in the tea garden and even some dancing.

Padca CEO Trevor Clowes said: “There was a sense of community spirit shared amongst all involved and we thank our generous sponsors for their hands-on efforts leading up to and including the morning, they truly made all our Pietermaritzburg seniors feel loved!”

Padca is a vibrant, dynamic non-profit organisation based in Pietermaritzburg, a leader in senior care in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and a resource of choice for senior citizens and their families. They support people through the aging process, offering a continuum of services and care for seniors across the whole financial spectrum.
