The Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium precinct will once again be alive with activity on Thursday evening as over 100 business teams take part in the second round of the Investec Night Relay. The Windguru is predicting a balmy 9 knot Northerly wind from 5:00 pm for Thursday. No cloud cover and a toasty 18 degrees will make your journey pleasant.
The event, hosted by the Mandela Bay Development Agency, starts at 6pm from Lakeside and will see walking and running teams tackling the 4.2km laps around the Stadium and North End Lake.
Round 2 of the Investec Night Relay series will be creating awareness of the ACVV Kamvalethu Street Work Programme which is the only drop-in centre for street children in Nelson Mandela Bay and is situated just around the corner from the Stadium in Korsten. The centre focuses on empowering the children and their families, getting them off the streets and providing the children with food, clothing and the opportunity to wash themselves and their clothing. On the evening local businesses are urged to support the centre through the donation of food, clothing, toiletries or services. Representatives from the centre will be present at the event to answer any questions which the participating companies may have.
All teams will receive a complimentary team photograph with the winners receiving medals and floating trophies. There will be great prizes up for grabs including an iPod Nano, MTN cell phone, jewellery from Havilah and a DSTV drifta from Digicom.
The event will start at 18:00 with the lucky draw prizes giving taking place at 20:30.
Late entries are accepted at North End Lake from 4pm on Thursday. See www.investecnightrelay.co.za for further information.
