As with most events and road races since March 2020, the Rotary GTR 2020 event faced tremendous challenges. Despite these difficulties, the organising committee felt committed to our community to carry on and do the best they could by hosting a virtual race.
‘Participants had the opportunity to support 5 local charities with voluntary donations and we were greatly surprised by the amounts raised for each, totaling R20 810’, said Charles Deiner, Race Committee Chairman.
The following beneficiaries received a welcome Christmas gift in December:
Hospice Middelburg R4 470;
Jabez Food Bank R3 650;
Middelburg Care Village R4 670;
New Life Children’s Home R3 670; and
SPCA Middelburg R4 350.
Thank you to each participant that donated, every little bit helps to better the lives of those who need it most.
The organisers are keeping a close eye on the ever-evolving situation with lockdown regulations and will make an announcement in the near future about the 2021 event. Keep an eye our website www.gtr.co.za and social media pages (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram) for further updates.
