The Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust (HACT) will be challenging this year’s Comrades Marathon EXPO visitors to guess the number of beads on our unique “Run for Hope” running shoes that will be on display at our charity stand.
The striking shoes were beaded by 56 year-old grandmother, Lindiwe Mkhwanazi using the traditional Zulu “nhlavunye” or “one seed” pattern. Lindiwe, who lives in Inchanga in the Valley of 1000 Hills is one of the 1500 local women who currently earn a sustainable living through HACT’s awarding-winning Woza Moya arts and crafts project.
A R2000 gift voucher for Woza Moya, your very own pair of beaded running shoes valued at R1500 and a cultural tour for four into the Valley of 1000 Hills where you can meet and have lunch with grandmothers from our Granny Support Groups programme is up for grabs to the EXPO visitor with the closest correct guess!
HACT is an official charity of the Comrades Marathon.
