Wendy set to run the 2017 Comrades Marathon for HACT

Event Date: 13 Mar 2017

HACT is delighted to announce that in 2017, we once again have a dedicated marathon runner who will be tackling the Comrades Marathon in order to raise much needed funds for HACT! We’ve been fortunate in the past few years to have friends of HACT from different parts of the world participating in the Comrades Marathon on our behalf and to all of these incredible people, we remain truly grateful! This year, Wendy Ndlamlemze, a local mum will be running this world famous ultra-marathon to raise funds for HACT’s Gogo Support Groups programme. Wendy is busy training hard for this ultimate human race while balancing her busy family (she is mum to three young children) and work life. She’s determined to tackle for a second time, the gruelling 86.73km race that’s taking place right here on our centre’s doorstep on the 4th of June 2017. HACT would like to thank Wendy for taking up this gruelling challenge and for her commitment to making a difference in our grannies lives and the Valley of 1000 Hills community at large. Her fundraising target is R8700 (£540; $ 650; 625 euros) and she would so much welcome your support! If you would like to support Wendy’s 2017 Comrades Marathon campaign, you can donate any amount here All donations will help bring skills, education and support to our grannies and their grandchildren, many of whom have been orphaned. Thank you for your support and we look forward to keeping you updated on Wendy’s progress via our Facebook page here
