Would you run 50km for fun or for charity? Well you don't have to, you can just support me, Dennis Kamanga, as I run the Bonitas City 2 City Marathon in aid of Hotel Hope Ministries. Sit down with your legs up and your wallet out in aid of a good cause and watch me sweat it out on the street from Jozi to Centurion.
I am 47 years old married man with 4 children, which means I am wise and my wife is amazing . I started running seriously in 2005. My favorite race is The Comrades Marathon, 89kms, which I have run 7 times. I run under Discovery Athletics club and on the 30th of September I am running the Bonitas City 2 City Marathon in aid of my charity, Hotel Hope Ministries, to raise funds for the orphaned and abandoned children as well as women in crisis.
Put your money to good use and donate as I run.
Date: Sunday 30 September 2012
Route: From Johannesburg to Centurion
