Runners for Charity Seychelles collaborates with the Red Cross Society for a charity fun run on December 11.
Mr. Melanie and his team invite Seychellois of all ages to participate in the race and contribute. "The run for a worthy cause began in 2019 and finished in 2022. It now falls under the Runners for Charity Seychelles organization, which I founded to handle related activities.
This activity was always in my plan. Many of us will be able to celebrate the holidays without any problems. Still, many won't be able to do so. To encourage more people to attend and participate, Mr. Melanie said that the runners would be at the Roche Caiman fitness trail this time.
People can run or walk depending on their fitness level, so please come out and enjoy yourself with your family. Please don't hesitate to contribute so we can cheer up some other families, Mr. Melanie pleaded.
According to Michel Simeon, logistics officer at the organization, a charity event is held annually by the RCSS to benefit the less fortunate. Mr. Melanie's approach to us this time focused on Seychellois families who are less fortunate and vulnerable on Mahé, Praslin, and La Digue.
