MEC Jenner to Hand Over Funds to the Organisers of the Laingsburg Ultra Marathon
According to Minister Jenner, 'It is obvious that the sporting development of this rural community is important to the organisers of this event'.
'Our rural communities are neglected in terms of sporting events and this marathon which as of this year will serve as a qualifier for the Comrades Marathon, will ensure that the town of Laingsburg gets put on the sporting map.'
Details of the cheque hand over are as follows:
Date: Friday 11 September 2009
Venue: Laingsburg Golf Club
All media welcome to attend.
