In support of the 19 000 runners who participated in the 91st Comrades Marathon on the 29th May 2016, MANCOSA staff and their family members gathered to encourage, hydrate and cheer the runners toward the finish line.
The MANCOSA cheerleaders were high in spirit as they waved the green and white colours, when the first man, Mr David Gatebe, was passing the 39th watering station.
“The biggest highlight for the team, was seeing the amount of disabled runners who participated in the race, in particular the blind and runners with prosthetic limbs. We felt highly motivated from seeing the joy the runners expressed as they passed the team, and some even stopped and took pictures with us. This elevated the status of respect we now have for all those who participated in the race and we feel proud to have had a share in supporting their goal.” said Miss Meghan John.
“It was really a pleasure to see our staff members and volunteers rally together to clear the road of all the empty water packets and bottles. It proved that we share in the true meaning of team spirit which is one of the key commitments we strive towards within our organisation as a whole,” stated MANCOSA management.
MANCOSA is proud to have been a part of the Comrades Marathon 2016 and we would like to extend a thank you to all our staff, volunteers and organisers who assisted us in making the dreams of runners come true.
