Manenberg Boeberrun

posted in: Boeber Run, Events, LU4C | 0

The August edition of the Boeber Run saw us visit our guests in Manenberg. In this cooperative event with our friends from the Brothers 4 Life initiative we were able to feed approximately 600 guests in the area.

Again, the heart warming welcomes, smiles and words of appreciation were enough to remind us of how fortunate we are to have the choice to stay indoors on a cold winter’s night.

From a Lace Up For Change perspective, we are extremely encouraged by the growth in the number of youth that have been joining us at our Boeber Runs. The future looks bright for humanitarian aid 🙂


We are yet again reminded that the need for self empowerment is great within impoverished areas and #TheCrew is determined to develop our self empowerment projects. We are please to confirm that the weekend of 18 August 2018, 2 residents at the Ihata Shelter for Abused Women and Children were given employment opportunity with our friends at A Power Cup.

A Power Cup are a husband and wife team who run a Nespresso coffee truck and are geared at serving big crowds. When you next see the A Power Cup van, please pop by and support and help us grow this initiative by empowering those less fortunate.

The Next Boeber Run is scheduled for Sunday 16 September 2018 and will be a day trip to Touws River. More details to follow soon so please be on the look out and join us on this historic venture.

A reminder that although we are sharing the images on Social Media, we are not doing so for recognition of our efforts. We hope to encourage others to join us to to do the same.
