The East London community is primed for another entertaining day of exercise when the city hosts the SPAR Daily Dispatch Fun Run. The event starts and finishes at the Orient Beach pools and offers a timed 8km race and a fun 4km untimed option. The shorter distance is ideal for walkers and a perfect opportunity for those in wheelchairs to join the fun. This Daily Dispatch Fun Run is linked to the Wheelchair Wednesday campaign run by the Association for Persons with Physical Disabilities which we have held in Nelson Mandela Bay during August. The 4km course is wheelchair-friendly and is an opportunity to enjoy the sort of race that many of us take for granted. The event organisers also donate wheelchairs to needy recipients in the greater East London area. The Sweethearts Foundation will again be the beneficiary, with R10 from each entry going towards the charity. Click here to enter.
