RTP-048

 

November 2015 The happiest 5K on the planet splashed the Centurion Rugby Club with bright and beautiful colours on the 31st October for the Pretoria leg of The Color Run series brought to you by Capitec Bank.

 

Headline sponsor Capitec Bank, shares The Color Run’s passion for social upliftment and will donate R 10 from each ticket sold to a school for much-needed resources. For Pretoria, Motshegofadiwa Primary School has been identified from a list provided by the Adopt-A-School Foundation. The funds raised by Capitec and The Color Run will be used to assist with a primary school library books, school uniforms for orphaned children and administrative resources.

 

“The resource needs of Motshegofadiwa Primary School are in line with what Capitec works to achieve through our CSI. Not only did The Color Run bring joy to the participants in this fun run event but also new opportunities and hopes for better education to the learners at Motshegofadiwa  Primary School ,” says Capitec Bank spokesperson Charl Nel.

 

To introduce a fun element and raise awareness for the partnership, more than 350 colourful soccer balls were displayed in a giant tackie installation at the Pretoria event. These will be distributed between all the recipient schools after the completion of The Color Run series to help boost the schools’ sports equipment in the year.

 

The tackie sculpture, built out of 100% recyclable mild steel, was created by well-known Durban artist Andries Botha. “It allowed runners to engage with the initiative at the event. They were able to take fun photos with the shoe and our freestyle ball kickers provided entertainment with their excellent skill,” says Nel.

 

Motshegofadiwa is classified as a primary school (Grade R – 7) that accommodates xxx learners. Located in Stinkwater – 58km North of Pretoria in Gauteng, the school community is characterised by extreme poverty and high levels of unemployment.  Despite the lack of physical and educational resources, the school is run by an excellent management team and enthusiastic and passionate educators.

 

 

The Color Run is the largest 5km event series in the world. During 2014, it hosted more than 300 events in over 50 countries.

Over 9 500 Color Runners participated in the Johannesburg leg. The subsequent social media explosion, with The #CapitecColorRun trending third on Twitter, is testament to the joy and excitement the event brought to participants. Local licence holder of The Color Run South Africa, Sportsvendo, maintains that the success of the event is attributable to remaining true to the worldwide ethos of the brand: “The Color Run is about being healthy, being happy, self-expression, and giving back,” says Sportsvendo CEO, Leon Swanepoel.

 

“Thanks to the generosity of our headline sponsor, Capitec Bank, R10 from every ticket sold for The Color Run is being donated to charity. In Johannesburg alone, we were able to raise in excess of R73 000 for Adopt-A-School, which makes the event so much more than a singular day of fun – it allows for longevity, which is extremely important to us at Sportsvendo, The Color Run, and Capitec,” says Swanepoel.

 

“Capitec Bank, like The Color Run, believes in health, happiness, individuality, giving back, living life in technicolour and having fun, while caring about the community,” says Charl Nel, head of communications at Capitec Bank.

 

Nel says, “We are so excited to share this magic with Pretoria on 31 October. We’re going to brighten the city, its Color Runners, and the community too. Be sure to check out our giant tackie in Pretoria which highlights our partnership and items purchased forAdopt-A-School. Take a photo using our hashtag and you’ll be automatically entered into our competition.”

 

 

 

Schools and individual charities can also use The Color Run to raise funds. Register your own school or charity on the Fun Raiser programme and raise money for every ticket sold under your unique Fun Raiser code.

 

Register a corporate team of five or more runners. Each corporate team gets a unique item of apparel to set it apart from the rest.

On the cover, she wears a divine leotard by Sheila-Madge,” says Kerrie. In an exciting twist, Cosmo and Sheila-Madge will be giving away the cover look via a social media competition.
