Entries are now open for the 35th Community Chest Twilight Run on Tuesday, 5 December 2017. Cape Town’s streets will, once again, come alive in a flurry of excitement and colour, as around 8 000 noble participants and spectators don the outfits of their favourite superhero, animal or mythical creature to take part in a 5km walk/run for charity. As always we are excited to see how your costumes reflect the cause you represent be it HIV/AIDS; Violence against women and children or Human Rights.
Accomplishing this feat of endurance for a good cause is a heroic undertaking that should be done in suitable attire and the Community Chest invites attendees to dress according to this year’s theme – ‘be the superhero in your community’. All profits from the event will be donated to charities that operate in the Community Chest’s key focus areas including Education, Health, Income Generation and Community Development.
So, those who want to enter the run/walk or best-dressed competition and take selfies in seriously outrageous outfits along the way, need to get their proverbial skates on and visit the Community Chest’s website to book their place: www.comchest.org.za or call 021 487 1500.
