The Birchwood Hotel OR Tambo Conference Centre has "adopted" 5 informal settlements in Boksburg by supporting various projects. Among other projects which have proven to be successful are the building of 8 creches in the area and employing residents as caretakers and teachers of the kids in the area.
You can help by bringing non-perishable food items as a donation to the race - there will be a donation box at the venue for you.
