The Comrades Marathon is a big highlight in the year for the school and the Kids. The school get an opportunity to fundraise through this event.
The International runners get a tour through the Route and come past Ethembeni School where the learners would be waiting to sing and dance for them.
The school also gets an opportunity to go to the Expo before the Marathon weekend to sell and market some of the items (beadwork mostly) that our learners in the skills section make.
The International Comrades Marathon runners from Brazil have recently donated some of their running shoes to the learners at the school. (You can see more of this on the Comrades Marathon website) Please also see one of the attachments.
