In 2009 the United Nations declared the 18th of July (Nelson Mandela’s birthday) Mandela day in honor of a lifetime spent fighting social injustices. The Nelson Mandela Foundation has since invited the global community to dedicate 67 minutes of their time on Mandela Day to making the world a better place. Celebrating the idea that an individual has the ability to change the world.
The Energy Lab Athletic Company is challenging participants to cover AT LEAST 6.7km in 67 minutes. Participants can do more if they wish and there will be a prize for the runner who covers the greatest distance in 67 minutes. Entry fees will be ZAR 67.00 For runners who would like to commemorate their achievement with a collector’s medal and/or T-Shirt there will be premium entries available that include these items.
All proceeds from the event will be in aid of the John Nugent Memorial Eyecare Foundation, that will spend Nelson Mandela Day screening people for signs of preventable eye disease.
