Staff of Golden Gate Spar and members of the Verulam Child Welfare Society fun run committee.
The Verulam Child and Family Welfare Society, in partnership with Golden Gate Spar and Verulam Athletics Club will be hosting a family fun run at the Verulam Sports Ground on September 30 at 8:30am.
The focus of the fun run/walk is ‘Run to help a child’. This phrase is used because every cent raised in the project will be used in assisting our children. Participants will have a choice of two distances – 5km and 2km.
The donation for participating in the fun run is R10 per person. All participants for the fun run need to be at the Verulam Sports Ground by 8am.

The Verulam Athletic Club has partnered with Verulam Child Welfare and Golden Gate Spar to take care of the logistical arrangements with respect to the fun run/walk.
As the anchor sponsor of the fun run, Golden Gate Spar will present all participants with goodie bags. The first 1000 runners/walkers to pass the finish line will be presented with medals.
The society is indeed grateful to Golden Spar for embracing social responsibility and positioning the fun run as a major event in Verulam’s calendar.
In order to make this event an overwhelming success, the society appeals to participants to come in their numbers to the Verulam Sports Ground to grace the fun run. Participants can obtain their entry tickets at Golden Gate Spar and at their schools.
The society wants to thank schools that have accepted fun run tickets.
The Verulam Child and Family Welfare Society calls on families, religious organisations, business houses, athletics clubs, Metro Police, SAPS, teachers, children and non- governmental organisations to participate in the fun walk/run.
