Organisers of the Parkrun held their first Parkrun community project on Saturday (10 June).
Runners and walkers had to complete the Parkrun in their pajamas on Saturday morning.
The aim of this project was to collect warm clothes and blankets for the needy.
Runners had to bring an item of clothing or a blanket.
Some of the goods were already donated towards projects to help people in Knysna and the rest will be donated to local homeless people.
Secunda’s event was not the only parkrun held in aid of the needy.
Several other parkruns in Mpumalanga also took part and parkruns in Johannesburg and Pretoria will join in soon.
Adele Enslin, organiser of all the parkruns in Mpumalanga said this is the first of many similar projects.
