Celebrate Life Run a Great Success

On Saturday 2nd May 2015 Albert’s Farm parkrun decided to have a fun morning and create a lot of excitement and activity! Blessed with the most beautiful winter’s morning, the event was used to celebrate Life  and create awareness as to a healthy living lifestyle with the assistance of CANSA.

Lucy Balona, a regular Albert’s Farm “park runner” and Head of Marketing & Communication at CANSA, provided all the activity for the morning.  Runners were encouraged to get their hair spayed by CANSA and at the same time educated as to the use of sun screen. CANSA handed out badges and pamphlets as well as gave us numerous giveaways which were most appreciated.

After a good run by all the runners’ coffee and cupcakes were provided to celebrate the 50th parkrun by myself. It was a goal that I had set myself last year and I am committed to our parkrun being used to educate and promote a healthy lifestyle. It was very fitting that my grandson Adam Confait also completed his 10th parkrun on the day.

A very big thank you to all my volunteers and folk that made the morning such a success. This parkrun has truly become a community event!
