The Seaside Family Church will host their annual Family Fitness Fun Day at the Gonubie Sports Grounds in East London on October 20.
The event started off as both an idea to make a difference in the community, while being a being and also as a fund raiser for additional classrooms at the Gonubie Christian School, which is linked to the church.
“Together with Percy Shaw, we arranged a fun cycle to get the community participating,” Pastor Dion Pfiffner said.
Formally known as the Seaside Family Church Fun Cycle, it will encompass children’s cycling and a 5km fun run/walk. There will also be three cycle distances available: 50km, 30km and 10km.
Pfiffner said that it this was a family friendly experience that everyone could be part of.
“The kiddies event allows kids as young as two years old to participate in three different distances at the Gonubie Sports Fields. There are also fantastic prizes available to those who stay for the prize- giving,” Pfiffner said.
The 10km cycle route will circuit around the Main Road, Gulls Way, Ocean Way Road and back to the Main Road. Funds raised so far have helped build eight classrooms and an administration block. The proceeds from this race will go to further fund the school and church.
“This wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of the volunteers, the participation of the sponsoring companies and willing participants,” Pfiffner said.
