Our Social Responsibility

  • In 2008 we had a community outreach at TIPINI Community in an informal settlement next to Ngangelizwe Township, the club donated clothes and food parcels as a way of giving them a proper Christmas. We wanted to make it a yearly event but due to financial constraints we find it hard to sustain.
  • We have adopted athletes from Tsolo Special School for Disabled, we donated running kits and we also provide coaching on an a part-time base
  • We also have a development programme aimed at developing athletes at school level headed by Mr Thembile Nyokana who is a teacher by profession and a member of the club.
  • It is also one of our priorities to assist some of our disadvantage athletes with running gear and sport nutrition supplements
