Nelson Mandela Day 2015
For Madiba Day 18 July 2015 we headed off to Nelson Mandela’s Birth Place in Qunu in the Eastern Cape. A lot was happening at The Nelson Mandela Museum. To start the day off there was a 6.7 Km’s Fun Run with Let’s Play for all the local Children. Once all the runners made it back to the Museum the fun really started! We had Obstacle Courses set out for the Children. There was also tennis being played and even boxing! The children had a blast and were kept busy.
