On 1st June 2014, six members of the “Wolfpack Running Club” from Macquarie’s Cape Town office and one from Hong Kong will attempt to run the Comrades marathon. This is an 89.9km run from Pietermaritzburg to Durban and must be completed in under 12 hours. This is the first time any of us are running such a distance and we are wanting our pain and accomplishment to benefit a greater cause than our egos.
We are raising funds for NEWKIDZ, an organisation that improves the living conditions of vulnerable and needy children in South Africa. One of the ways they do that is by organising renovation projects for children’s homes and foster family accommodation.
