Mandela Day Fun-Run!

Mandela is remembered for celebrating the idea that every individual can have an impact on the world, and that no gesture is too small to spark change. To continue his legacy, we ask everyone to commit just 67 minutes to help make the world a better place! So, use this time to do something positive, whether that is helping out a friend, or making a difference in your community.To keep his spirit alive, Starfish supporters are organizing a charity fun run in Hyde Park at 10am on Wednesday 18th July - Mandela Day. The idea is to run for as long or as little as you like, meeting everyone at the start line to run the final, and most important, 466.64m (Mandela’s prison number) to the finish! As it is suitable for all athletic abilities, and all ages, it is a perfect opportunity for the whole family to get out and enjoy the sun during the school holidays! Although there is no strict theme, fancy dress is encouraged as there are prizes up for grabs for the most creative outfit, as well as for most money fundraised and longest distance run to the start line. If running isn’t your thing, there are plenty of games and sports to take part in during the day, as well as snacks and drinks to enjoy in the park afterwards. In the true spirit of Ubuntu, all funds raised will be shared between Starfish Greathearts Foundation and Uthando Masibulele Education Centre, helping vulnerable children in South Africa.To register,visit any questions, please email us at
