Since the founding of our club 1in 1962 by Joe Sack and his colleagues, the Sterkfontein Drive has been available to Sterkfontein patients. And it’s still groing strong. How’s that for an enduring and worthwhile project!
On the last Sunday of August we had our Drive again, as usual. Patients were treated to cold drinks and pastries and taken for a walk on the shady, winding pathways to the waterfall. De Waal told them interesting things about the plants, trees, rocks and birds on the way.
“Let’s put smiles on faces!”
On 25 June we helped Michelle Nel of the Child and Family Care Centre in Krugersdorp to take children to see the circus. We rented a bus and gave 80 children the day of their lives!

Road Race for people with disabilties
Once a year we organise a road race for children and grownups with various disabilities. They run a distance of about 2 kilometers. Some are pushed in their wheelchairs by athletes from Khosa Running Club. The club works with us to present the event.
Away they go!
Some run, some ride
