Support Community Chest

2017-04-05 06:03

THE Community Chests of Pietermaritzburg and Durban are one of the Comrades Marathon official charities for 2017 and are allowed to raise funds through the Comrades Marathon.

One of the fund-raising mechanisms is the Charity Seeded Batch.

If a runner participates for a nominated charity and is able to raise R5 000 for that charity, they get to start the race in a special seeded batch.

Runners who reach their R5 000 target before May will also get an entry ticket to a lucky draw prize to win a trip to participate in the Berlin Marathon.

The funds raised through the Race4Charity Platform will go towards assisting 6 000 underprivileged children attending early childhood development centres that are Community Chest beneficiaries in KZN.

The Community Chest would like to extend their sincere thanks and appreciation to all runners who have already selected Community Chest as their “Charity of Choice” in the Comrades Marathon 2017. If you are a qualified Comrades runner and would like to turn your passion for sport into a worthwhile cause contact Nontuthuko Mashimane on 072 196 6702 or Angie PMB Community Chest on 033 394 1031 or Gordon (DBN Community Chest) on 031 303 3890.
