PAF Chairperson, Semakaleng Mabeba, said this annual charity event aims to encourage a healthy lifestyle while raising awareness of the plight of impoverished people in the community.

“We work hand-in-hand with LFP and through this event we want to encourage health and fitness. We have been doing this for years and it has been great to team up with LFP, they are a good sponsor for us. The shoes we collect will be distributed to the different schools we have identified in Limpopo,” said Mabeba.

Ham No 1 Primary School teacher, Phuti Ngoepe, accepts the donated school shoes from LFP Marketing Manager, George Sethosa, during the charity aerobics marathon at the Seshego Circle Centre on Thursday, 9 August.

Ham No 1 Primary School teacher, Phuti Ngoepe, said this donation will help the school and learners a lot.

“This is a dream come true for us as some of the learners used to come to school without proper school uniforms. This affected their self-confidence and their ability to concentrate in class. What LFP and PAF did for us is something we will not forget,” Ngoepe said.
