Beehive, a centre for social enterprise will hold its annual race on the 4th of November.
The race will start at Chipiku in Chitawira from 7am, passing by Queen Elizabeth Hospital, going through town up to beehive in Chilomoni.
Samuel Sozela, Operations Manager and Race Director at Beehive says “mainly we want to encourage people of Blantyre to be fit and also to keep the city clean”.
This is the first time Beehive is having the race in the city.
Sozela says “in chilomoni, it is the second time as we recently had Beehive Open Day where we were showing people what beehive is about and what it is doing to the community”.
He adds “so one of the activities on that day was ‘The Way of The Cross Race’ it was so successful we had about 70 participates”.
Beehive has 10 enterprises like John Paul 2, which is an Information Technology Academy, Beebikes, Beebooks, Beetailoring, torrent plant hire among some.
All profits go into Mother Teresa children’s center adds Sozela “so we do business to do charity”.
To register, a fee of k1000 has to be paid at beebooks in chilomoni or Veggie Delight opposite FMB Bank in Blantyre town.
Those who can not register in advance can simply register on the same day at 6am at Chipiku.
