DROP OFF A PAIR AND SHOW YOU CARE

During the 2015 SPAR Women’s Challenge, Caxton staff noticed that many children from disadvantaged schools in Johannesburg took part in the SPAR Women’s Challenge race, barefoot. This year, Caxton is running a special charity drive for the 2019 SPAR Women’s Challenge – to put shoes on feet – so that the shoes can be used not just to run the race but to keep cold winter chills away from feet as well.

Those participating in the Spar Women’s Challenge can drop off their old shoes when they collect their race numbers at the Marks Park Sports Club.
