The Mandela Day Marathon is an opportunity that Absa is excited to be a part off. Absa has partnered with the Marathon for three years until 2020. The Marathon has become an opportunity for Absa to be at the forefront of implementing our role in society philosophy that sees us as a Bank committing resources to grow and develop the societies where we operate in and at the same time growing our business. We are excited to implement our strategy in the uMgungundlovu District municipal area.
In addition to the sponsorship of the Marathon, we have a relationship with the Edendale Hospital’s Paediatric Ward. We have embarked on developing the infrastructural and operational needs of the ward. To celebrate the centenary anniversary of uTata, Nelson Mandela, Absa is also sponsoring the entry fees of 100 young runners from a local athletics club, to participate in this year’s race.
On behalf of Absa, we would like to wish the runners and organizers well on a successful Mandela Day Marathon. #NM100 – Keep running the legacy!
