Athletes race against climate change

The Sol Plaatje University, together with the Department of Science and Innovation and the Northern Cape Department of Educa­tion, hosted a fun run on Saturday (20/07).

Billed as the Race Against Climate Change, this was a pre-launch event to National Science Week that will take place from Monday (29/07) to Saturday, 3 August.

Runners were invited to join the fun run to raise awareness of the impact of climate change and the need to take action to save the earth.

Participants of all three entities, along with members of the community, took part in this diverse and inclusive event.

Each runner was given a medal for participation, while the male and female winners were awarded trophies.

Shelton Kaamp of the Pirates Athletics Club was the winner of the male category.

Nkeza Mphawaza came in second place, while Mogometsi Makukumare was placed third.

The winner in the female category was Pulane Pharasi, followed by Lisinda Grobler in second place and Marina Pelser in the third place.

Participants and spectators were able to get free HIV and glucose testing at the event through the mobile unit of the Northern Cape Department of Health.

A number of prizes were awarded, with the Mamabolo family making a clean sweep.

The fun run will be followed by the official launch of National Science Week, which will take place at the Mittah Seperepere Convention Centre in Kimberley on Saturday (27/07).

The theme of this week-long event has embraced the theme of “Facing the harsh realities of climate change” as a public call to action to protect the planet.
