It was a day to put your best foot forward when Bhekulwandle Primary School received a donation of school shoes for 100 of its pupils. uShaka Marine World, in collaboration with the Ntenga Foundation and the ‘Know Your City’ Tour Programme, visited the school on Thursday, 17 May.

The school of over 800 underprivileged pupils were treated to entertainment by the Ocean Warrior Mascots of uShaka Marine World, which put a smile on the little faces, before the CEO of uShaka Marine World, Dr Stella Khumalo addressed the pupils.

The brand-new school shoes, a result of the funds raised by the Ntenga Foundation Charity Run and Walk over the past year, were then donated to the principal who had already allocated them accordingly.

Now in its fourth year running, the run and walk is already one of the top unique charity mass participation events in KZN, bringing together a superb fusion of music and athletics to Durban.

Bhekulwandle Primary School pupils gives a thumbs-up for the donation.

About 6,000 social runners, families and friends will participate at this year’s race by taking part in either a 5km or 10km run and walk. Funds raised through the event goes towards buying school shoes for underprivileged children like those of Bhekulwandle Primary School.
