Thank you Lorraine (left) and Rutendo (also known by her performance name – .R. -right) for completing your first half marathon + doing it to support the ECCT cancer patients & their families, along with honouring all those Zimbabweans who lost their fight to the disease.

Last month, we told you about these two wonderful ladies pictured above completing the Half Marathon in the Econet Victoria Falls Marathon on 28 June 2015 in honour of those Zimbabweans who have lost their fight to the disease and also to fundraise for the ECCT patients and their families. You can read an interview of the ladies and learn more about them by clicking here now.

Well, we are happy to let you know that they successfully completed the run. Not only did they receive so many messages from Zimbabweans worldwide telling their story about cancer and how it had affected either them or a loved one – they also raised AUSD$220 for the ECCT patients and their families! This money will go to support the families with food, medical costs and school fees for the kids. Victoria Falls Hotel also donated a voucher for a 2 night stay which will be auctioned in the upcoming weeks in Harare. We will give you details as soon as we have them.
