Event may become annual one

18 January 2012
 
LAST Saturday, Walk/Run in the Parks – road races over 10km and 5km, and a 1.2km walk for those with disabilities – was held in Mill Park and Newton Park to raise funds, and to create awareness of the neurological motor neuron disease, corticalbasal degeneration, and people with special needs (“Disease awareness the focus”, January 13).
 
I would like to publicly thank Loynes Jenkerson and his committee from the Walmer Athletics Club for organising and hosting the event, the Grey schools for providing the venue, all the sponsors, the traffic department, the helpers and the 1000-plus participants from as far away as Port Alfred and Graaff-Reinet.
 
It was a most enjoyable morning and the beginning of what will hopefully become an annual event on the road running calendar in Port Elizabeth.
