STRUCK BY THE SHARED VALUES AND DEMOGRAPHIC OF MDC AND PLAYGROUP

Posted by Karen Bevan on 16 April 2015

After a long career in walking, I started running about 5 years ago. I’m a slow but steady (and somewhat on and off) runner. Believe me when I say I’m not breaking any records for my shuffling! In 2011 I ran the Mother’s Day Classic for the first time as a quiet and very personal tribute to my mum who experienced breast cancer in 2001 and not only survived, but thrived. In 2012 I missed the run but also had my own experience with breast cancer, being diagnosed with a very small, very early form of cancer. I completed treatment on 29 December 2012 and have so far been clear. In 2014 I returned to the Mother’s Day Classic, this time at the Domain and ran alone again as my own little celebration a year or so on from my experience with breast cancer. I vowed last year that not only would I run again in 2015, but that I would not run alone.

Fundraising is a Rewarding Experience for Samantha Gash and her mum

Posted by Samantha Gash on 18 December 2014

Late this year I ran off road across South Africa, from Pietermaritzburg to Paarl – just outside of Cape Town. I ran with a 52-year-old lady from the UK who only began running in her 30s. We wanted our run to make a positive impact to the lives of women in rural villages in South Africa, so we chose to collaborate with Save the Children to do this.

Wow, I cannot believe we are coming to the end of 2014. What a massive year it has been. For me, this year has been huge. On the court I would say one of my most successful to date.
