COVID 19 has had an impact on everyones life.Undeniably it has put some of our brothers and sisters to a point where they can’t cater for their basic needs mostly food, and shelter.Many are being locked out of their houses.Many cannot feed their families because their work places closed down or they can no longer work because of social distancing. This in addition to the requirements for masks and other requirements to stay safe from the virus.
We are our brothers keeper and its times as these that we need to stand by each other.Not because we have too much ourselves,but out of the abundance of the heart and gratitude for what we already have.
Adopt a family is an initiative to be our brothers and sisters keeper. Lets together as recreational runners, our families, friends and well wishers from all walks of life come together and do the little that we can.
For many runners we have done races that have supported charities in places away from home.Its time to bring out the running for charity closer home.
A select committee representing various groups co- ordinated by FitnessWithDavid will spearhead this.The committee whose mandate is to select and prioritise the cases of families that are in need shall comprise of
We are requesting for people to identify the needy families around them speciﬁcally those whose situation is as a result of the hardships caused by Corvid 19.

Like the poor woman in the bible who gave the last 2 pieces of silver she had,together with our bits here and there we can make some difference.
