At Kids Haven, we value education as one of our key priorities to secure the future for all of the vulnerable children living in our care. But 2020 turned our world upside down and made us responsible to home school 157 children of all ages - we became the preschool teacher, the class teacher, the remedial teacher, the high school teacher and even the job coach. We received hundreds of lessons via WhatsApp and online. It was tough but we DID it!
Since February, our kids have been getting back into the routine of school. We are not yet back to normal but our children are loving being back in the 'real' classroom with their friends and teachers. Our current challenge is how we are going to meet all of our costs to keep our kids in school this year.
Would you join us in creating a new normal with your virtual Two Oceans race in 2021 so that we can have enough money to keep all of our kids in school, meeting their grade requirements and ensuring that Kids Haven can be responsible 'parents' paying the school fees that are due, putting diesel in our bus and the right uniform and books into the hands of our children.
Step by step, kilometre by kilometre YOUR race keeps Kids Haven children in school in 2021.
Every runner who raises at least R 1200 for our campaign will receive their unique DAISY featherlite Kids Haven running vest or running T.
