Gratitude run

■ Make a difference in the lives of children while spending time outdoors, at the Gratitude Run by Distance for Difference (D4D), on Saturday October 20, at Lourensford Wine Estate, Somerset West. All funds raised will go towards children’s charities, including Tzadokah Foster Home, Sylvia’s House, Little Angels and Kingdom Kids. There are three options to choose from: the 5km fun run/walk is ideal for young and old, as you set your own pace, and you can take your four-legged best friend (just remember the leash). The 10km trail run offers one of the most scenic routes in the Western Cape, and will be timed, and the third option is a six-hour, 5km team relay run. Runners enter as a team with a minimum of one, and maximum of six team members, and run laps of 5km each. The challenge for teams will be to complete as many 5km laps as possible in the allotted time period, as well as raise a minimum of R5 000. D4D is a registered NPO, which has made a significant contribution towards the wellbeing of children for the past 13 years.
