The Gratitude Run at Lourensford

Event Start Date
Entrance Fee
R 80.00

On 2 October 2016, running and walking enthusiasts are invited to join Distance for Difference (D4D) by helping them to make a difference in the lives of children in need. The main beneficiary for this event will be Little Angels Children's Home. THE GRATITUDE RUN will take place at Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West and will start at 09h00. It will be a joint fundraising effort by D4D and Little Angels (a residential home in Somerset West for children with cerebral palsy). The event’s aim will be to raise R225,000 for children in need and at the same time create awareness for both NPO's.

Come and show your GRATITUDE for your health and your ability to walk and run. Come and make a difference!

This inaugural event promises to be a memorable one... for young and old! It is an event where positions, prizes and accolades should take a back seat and making a difference should be top of mind! It is all about being thankful for your life, your health and the ability to use your legs. Come and show your GRATITUDE. Please join us for a difference-making experience....with the angels from Little Angels Children's Home.
