What is this all about?(Happiness)
These fun runs will be held to do some fundraising to start up a library in Joe Slovo Park. They’re going to be on the 28th and 29th March 2015 respectively, 10:30am, Muizenberg Beach, Surfers Corner and Melkbosstrand Beach, NSRI Station.
Huh??? Tell me more…Happy thoughts:
They’re going to be like the colour run that I’m sure you have heard about – just way better, way more affordable and go towards a way better cause. It will involve running/walking/frisbees/hula-hoops/a billion bubbles/a save the world pick up 3 pieces of litter clean-up(as part of the run)/rolling on the beach/laughing.
So what’s the deal behind this run???
It’s a chance to celebrate and be happy and show gratitude for everything you have! Your family, health, maybe you’re a Cancer survivor, maybe you still fighting, maybe you lost a loved one but have been blessed with something/someone else. Join us on the the 25th and 26th for a really special event.
We are also raising funds to start up a library in Joe Slovo Park and to promote a reading/homework program with kids in the area. A big problem there is that there are no facilities near by for the kids to get books and encourage reading…so that’s where the funds raised from this run will go towards. Buying books and paying some local ladies from the community a monthly salary to help kids read, to encourage them taking a book home and bringing it back and swopping it for another one. Pretty cool huh 🙂
Kids need to walk quite far to get to the library – which they are – so that GREAT
But the need to cross super busy Koeberg Road – which is NOT GREAT
They go there to use the reference books – which is GREAT
But they are tearing pages out cos they don’t have access to these books closer to home and they don’t have money for photo copies – which is NOT GREAT
But at least they are doing their homework – which is GREAT
But lets make it easier for them. (Also great ne)
Books in a classroom/in their homes that they can use to read and do research on.
