The KAYA FM 67Km RELAY for Mandela Day entries are open

Posted by radio On May - 20 - 2013

Gauteng based commercial radio station Kaya FM 95.9  officially opened entries for the Kaya FM 67km Relay for Mandela Day two weeks ago.

 

The inaugural Kaya FM 67km Relay for Mandela Day is an initiative of Gauteng’s Afropolitan radio station, Kaya FM 95.9. Recently voted Best Commercial Station of the Year (2013 MTN Radio Awards), Kaya FM has collaborated with the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory so that the event forms part of July’s Mandela Day celebrations. The station has built a sustained partnership with the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory over the past few years and this represents the next step in that partnership.

 

The Kaya FM 67km Relay will effectively put the power of Kaya FM’s radio voice behind the legacy of Nelson Mandela’s most endearing principles of  reconciliation, peace and education. The relay reaches out to corporates and listeners to assemble their teams to take part in a mass participation event and thus create a fun team-building experience that also supports the Centre of Memory’s projects around education and legacy.

 

Kaya FM and the Centre of Memory encourage listeners to put together their teams of ten (10), begin an active health and training program and head for the Waterfall Equestrian Estate Polo Fields in Woodmead on Sunday, July 14, 2013, for what will be a fun day for the whole family. Team members will run a 6.7km leg, covering a collective distance of 67km, to highlight the Mandela Day 67 minute commitment to community and nation building.

 

Kaya FM will limit the event to 670 teams equating to 6 700 runners or participants. In a first for relay running in South Africa, the Kaya FM 67km Relay for Mandela Day will be timing runners, releasing both relay-leg times and combined times for teams. The day’s entertainment will feature Kaya FM DJs as well as selected local artists to ensure a celebratory vibe. Corporate Hospitality packages are also on offer for corporate teams taking part.

 

Kaya FM Managing Director Greg Maloka says: “A relay event reiterates the power of teamwork and what can be achieved collectively when people come together and share the work. The passing of the baton echoes Madiba’s message for the next generation: “…There is more work to be done. After 90 years of life, it’s time for new hands to take up the burdens. It is in your hands now.”

 

Proceeds from the relay will to go the Centre of Memory’s Library Project which aims to provide container libraries at disadvantaged schools.
