The country and its people have faced a lot of challenges these past 16 months since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. It has placed enormous strain on businesses and the livelihoods and health of many families. The events sector was particularly hard hit and continues to face hardships with current lockdown restrictions still in place.
Last year, the 2020 GTR continued as a virtual event with the hope that we would be able to have a physical race again in 2021. Unfortunately, the virus has other ideas. The GTR for Charity board held numerous discussions and with the support of our main sponsors have taken the decision to cancel this year’s race which was due to take place in August.
The Rotary Clubs of Middelburg, Middelburg Cycad and Witbank are however not sitting still and continues to be of service in the community. The funds raised with the 2020 GTR were used to buy Blankets and are being handed out to vulnerable members in the community to curb the cold. Persons or companies interested in joining hands with the clubs with various projects can send an email to email@example.com to be contacted by a Rotarian.
The committee thanks the members of the public for your great support.
