Meet Taziona Banda…the latest global member of the Family of ECCT. Only 9 days to go until the Melbourne Marathon Festival 2012 and the ECCT is welcoming more members who are running to support marginalized cancer patients in Zimbabwe. 27 year old Taziona is a Registered Nurse living in Melbourne, who is running in the 5km race of the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday 14 October 2012.
She joins the Melbourne team of runners: ECCT Founder – Teurai (Melbourne); Tamara (Melbourne); Victoria (Melbourne); Terance (Cairns) and Martin (Sydney), who are uniting forces to run for the ECCT patients. Between them, they have raised approximately $1000 so far.
Taziona only joined the team yesterday and has already raised $70. She says, “I am hoping to raise funds for the ECCT which I would like to be provided to the patients in the form of monthly medications and Dr’s visits. I’m looking forward to sweating it out and doing my best to complete a gruelling course through the streets of Melbourne and ending back at the world famous ‘G! I am honoured to be a part of this amazing race and helping this great cause for people in my home country.”
Taziona…we thank you!
