You may find it strange as an animal activist and lover, that I have a client in this ‘controversial’ industry. However I only took on this project as the owners and managers are not Hunters and believe in conservation a little more than I do even!
The majority of proceeds which are not used to look after the game in the breeding project, go towards the conservation of the surrounding farm ,feeding of animals especially after droughts and ant-poaching activities.
These animals are also treated by the top vets and no cost is spared in ensuring their health and well being.
So for the main post reason 🙂
Introducing the Madikwe Mambas Running Club!
The Madikwe Mambas consists of members of the local community who are all employed within the Madikwe Conservancy.
As part of our ethos at Purple Rain, we strongly believe that a ‘healthy body ensures a healthy mind’. It is therefore our aim to ensure that we provide all of our staff with the opportunity to participate in various sporting activities. This has and continues to instill a healthy attitude and atmosphere in our working and living environment.
Our Madikwe Mambas running club is not just an ordinary running club; it is a running club with a cause – and that is one of social good! Our runners run for their community as well as for the upliftment of the children in their communities.
The Purple Rain staff comes from three different villages namely:
Our Madikwe Mambas runners, being members of these communities, ascertain what the exact needs of the communities are. A priority project list is then drawn up after which the runners then try and raise funds for their communities.
Since the inception of the running club:
Crèches have been built,
School playgrounds have been upgraded,
Bus shelters have been erected,
Old lands have been transformed into lusern fields with water pivots
And so the list goes on!
Well done team Mambas! You are an inspiration to all of those around you.
As the Comrades Marathon 2016 draws closer and is now less than 50 days away, the team is in full swing training mode and we are proud to announce that this year we have 12 runners that have entered the race!
