Charity girls run in Bonaero Park will benefit two homes

EAST Rand-based marketing-communications agency, PR Worx, is the headline sponsor of the 2017 Significance Charity Girls Run on September 23.

The event, which kicks off from Christian Family Church in Bonaero Park, will raise funds for two charity projects, the El Shammah Home for Abandoned Babies in Primrose and the Bethesda Abused Women’s Home in Benoni.

Significance is a united movement to enable women throughout the world to find fulfilment by knowing God’s purpose for them and helps women stand strong spiritually to live in absolute freedom, love and joy every day.

Headed up by Dr Beverley Wolmarans, who has spent more than 30 years working to empower women, Significance encourages, equips, teaches and helps women to discover who they are in Christ.

PR Worx MD and Woman of the Year: Media winner, Madelain Roscher, says the agency is sponsoring the event because it values the work Significance is doing to encourage women and girls to value themselves.”

The two charities selected do not receive funding of any kind and therefore R30 or more of every R100 ticket purchased for the run will be donated to the two causes.

Girls and women from all over Gauteng are encouraged to run or walk the 4,5km to show their support for people who are abused or do not have access to the same resources as they do.

In addition to water points along the well-marked route, the event will also include activity stations, including an 18-wheeler dance truck with DJs to add to the festivities, a work-out post for the super-fit, and promotional give-aways which are aimed at making the run more fun.

“Our eventing department will tell you that a ladies’ function is incomplete unless you provide them with the opportunity to take a selfie or two! The route will therefore also offer three selfie stops because we understand that social media updates are non-negotiable. We will also offer a beauty hamper to the person whose hashtags #Significance #PoweredByPRworx receives the most traction on the day,” continues Wolmarans.

With each ticket purchased online, participants will receive a race pack comprising a race number, branded water bottle, T-shirt and, on completion, a medal. The race packs will be available for collection at the I Am Worthy Boutique at Christian Family Church every day up until Friday, September 22.

On-the-day registrations will be permitted but availability of the race pack is limited to stock availability. Race numbers are guaranteed. Restaurants at the church’s Fellowship Mall will be open and family members are encouraged to accompany participants for a day that promises to be fun.
