The Madikwe Mambas are all members of our local community who are all employed within the Madikwe Conservancy.
As part of our ethos at Purple Rain, we strongly believe that a ‘healthy body ensures a healthy mind’. It is therefore our aim to ensure that we provide all of our staff with the opportunity to participate in various sporting activities. This has and continues to instill a healthy attitude and atmosphere in our working and living environment.
Our Madikwe Mambas running club is not just an ordinary running club; it is a running club with a cause - and that is one of social good! Our runners run for their community as well as for the upliftment of the children in their communities.
The Purple Rain staff comes from four different villages namely:
Our Madikwe Mambas runners, being members of these communities, ascertain what the exact needs of the communities are. A priority project list is then drawn up after which the runners then try and raise funds for their communities.
Since the inception of the running club:
- Creches have been built,
- School playgrounds have been upgraded,
- Bus shelters have been erected,
- Old lands have been transformed into lusern fields with water pivots
And so the list goes on!
Currently the Madikwe Mambas are doing their last preparation and training for our biggest annual event … the 2017 Comrades Marathon 86.73km (53,90 miles) on Sunday 4 June 2017.
All the Mambas have been training very hard as they know that finishing the Comrades will generate donations and thus allow us to take on new exciting community projects.
