Runner Moms Take Charge Of The Jonkershoek Road #CleanUpYourAdventures Project
Alet Morgan, a Stellenbosch mom and runner, was tired of all the rubbish next to Jonkershoek road on her daily running route. Thursday, 15 February, she organised more runner moms and friends to help clean up the 6km stretch between Jonkershoek and Stellenbosch. They only managed 1.2km, by which time they filled 32 refuse bags with rubbish. 4.8km remains.
Thursday, 22 February, The team from Extreme Lights joined the runner moms to pick up rubbish. We decided as a local business, we also needed to do our part for the community. Our staff committed two hours per week for community service. As part of our #EcoPledge to #CleanUpYourAdventures we chose to join and support the runner moms on the Jonkershoek road as our first, of many clean up projects.
We want to challenge other businesses to do the same. Select an area that is special to you. Everyone has one. An area that you always say: I wish they wouldn’t make such a mess or I wish they would clean that up. Go there, and clean it. Do your part for the greater good.
Everyone is invited to participate in the next cleanup. It is planned for the upcoming Thursdays, 1 and 8 March on the road to Jonkershoek. 8:00 to 10:00.
