BENEFITING: Afrika Tikkun
EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2013
Lee-Ann Vermaak will be running the Philadelphia Half Marathon on behalf of the Acceleration North American team in order to raise money and support for the Acceleration social initiative: Afrika Tikkun.
Afrika Tikkun is similar to Acceleration: their roots are in SA, but with an international reach. They currently run 6 Community support centres across South Africa and have offices in the UK, North America and Australia where they coordinate various activities to raise funds.
Nelson Mandela is the Patron in Chief and other than his own children’s foundation, this is the only foundation he is involved with.“Afrika Tikkun has proven that it has the ability to reach sections of our disadvantaged population at a grassroots level. It therefore provides both physical help, as well as giving hope and dignity to its recipients.”
Nelson Mandela is Afrika Tikkun’s Patron in Chief.
Lee-Ann is aiming to run the half marathon on the 17th November in just on / under 2 hours! Please support her effort to raise funds for Afrika Tikkun on behalf of the Acceleration North American team.
Your support will be greatly appreciated.
