Categories: ALL THE NEWS , Sport
The Anna Foundation is delighted to have won 1st prize for the “GEES” charity competition at the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon! #SCTMcharitygees .
For many years the Anna Foundation children have been participating in the Sanlam 5km Peace run as a build up to the marathon and manning a water table at the marathon. This year the organisers launched this new incentive. The Anna Foundation children from winelands’ rural farming communities will benefit directly from the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon, Africa’s only IAAF Gold label status marathon by winning this amazing prize.
Over 100 children from the programme participated in the 5km Peace Run a day before the marathon. The Anna Foundation teenagers, supported by Somerset College students manned the Anna Foundation water station during the event with lots of gees and spirit and were overjoyed to win the ‘Gees’ Prize - the first prize - of R100 000 for the water table that displays the most ‘Gees’.
To raise awareness of the marathon among the Anna Foundation community, many children also participated in the #MyTChallenge. During running training on their rural farms, the marathon t-shirt was worn by many Anna Foundation aspiring athletes.
