Walking across South Africa to raise money for Limpopo schools

first_imgSocial entrepreneur Nkosinathi Manganyi is leading a group of South Africans on an endurance walk across the country, from Giyani, Limpopo to Cape Town, to raise money and awareness for disadvantaged schools in Limpopo.Social entrepreneur Nkosinathi Manganyi is undertaking an epic walk across South Africa to raise money and awareness for schools in Limpopo during February and March 2017. (Image: Facebook)CD AndersonThe 40-day, almost 2,000km walk began on 26 February 2017, with Manganyi and his team reaching their 500km milestone, Johannesburg, on 6 March.This is not Manganyi’s first walk for charity. In 2014, he walked from Johannesburg to Bloemfontein for children’s charities, and in 2015, he embarked on a longer trip from the Free State capital to Port Elizabeth for cancer research.Manganyi says his social entrepreneurship was first inspired by a friend in need, telling the New Age newspaper: “I had a friend who was diagnosed with bone cancer and they had to amputate his leg. It was at that moment that I realised how fortunate I was and wanted to give back to the community and show gratitude to God.”Hearing about various similar charitable walks around the world, particularly one by a man who walked from Europe to the North Pole in under a month, Manganyi decided “right there and then…that next year on my birthday I’m walking to Bloemfontein. I didn’t know how but I knew I had to do it.”Social entrepreneur Nkosinathi Manganyi is undertaking an epic walk across South Africa to raise money and awareness for schools in Limpopo during February and March 2017. (Image: Facebook)The Giyani to Cape Town trek is specifically for the community of Giyani, in particular schools in the area. Manganyi says schools here need urgent funding to rebuild libraries, revamp bathrooms and buy uniforms for more than 700 students.“We might be able to raise funds that could cover beyond the schools that we are looking to fund,” he told the Citizen newspaper on 28 February 2017, hoping to help out a few needy schools in Mpumalanga as well.Manganyi, a prominent church leader in his community, is also using the walk as a personal spiritual journey, a mission to spread the word of God. He and his team of walkers will visit schools and community centres along the way to speak about using God-given gifts to build and not destroy:“(We will be) working on the spiritual progress of people, (teaching communities about) what it takes to give and what it means to give to others. It’s about enlightening people about where they are coming from and who they are and where they are going,” he told the newspaper.#Giyani2CapeTown TweetsManganyi is using social media to spread the word of his journey, offering regular updates via his Facebook page and inviting anyone along the route to join the walk or offer assistance.“We are trying to do all of this to raise money so…anyone can join us (or sponsor the walkers) for 5km (at R100 per kilometre)…We currently have about 200 people joining us on the road.”But Manganyi says, above all, the walk is about meeting and talking to South Africans from all walks of life and changing lives along the way. “It’s not (only) about the money; it’s about playing your part with the little that you have.”Back in Giyani, the community is eagerly following his progress on social media and on the local community radio station, Giyani Radio.Station manager Prenomen Chabani says the work of Manganyi and his team of walkers is inspiring. “We are monitoring him every day so he can tell us where he is and what the challenges are that he is facing. We also help them with food and all that they may need for the trip.”For more information on Manganyi and his walkers’ journey through the country, and how you can contribute to the cause, check his Facebook page.

Heated 2nd half run propels Miami to romp of Pistons

first_imgUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chief MOST READ Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting And thanks to a 21-0 run to open the second half, the Miami Heat now have a tiny bit of breathing room in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The biggest Heat run of the season led to the biggest Heat win of the season, a 108-74 romp past the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.“Just a professional win by us tonight,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. “We played against a team that wasn’t making shots early, and we continued to keep going at them and continued to keep applying pressure.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesJustise Winslow scored 16 points for Miami, which had seven players in double figures. Dion Waiters scored 14, Josh Richardson and Hassan Whiteside each had 13 and Wade finished with 11 for Miami.Miami’s starting five — Richardson, Winslow, Waiters, Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk — played 12 minutes together. They shot 12 for 17, 4 for 4 from 3-point range and Miami outscored Detroit 36-13 in those 12 minutes. Andre Drummond fouled out with 6:30 left and finished with five points and nine rebounds — snapping his run of 19 consecutive double-doubles, which left him tied with Bob Lanier for the Pistons’ all-time record streak in that department.It wasn’t Drummond’s night.It wasn’t the Pistons’ night in any way. They shot 36 percent, got outrebounded 51-36 and were 8 for 37 from 3-point range — 1 for 17 in the second half. It went down as Detroit’s second-worst loss of the season, topped only by a 37-pointer at Indiana on Dec. 28.“For two games in a row now, we didn’t come out in playoff mode,” Pistons coach Dwane Casey said. “There’s nothing schematically. There’s nothing X-and-O wise. It’s our approach. We have to understand at this time of year … the only thing you can do is scrap and play hard.”TIP-INSPistons: Detroit hadn’t lost a quarter by 25 points since Oct. 30, 2010. … Drummond was looking to join Kevin Love (53), Dwight Howard (separate streaks of 33 and 20), Griffin (27) and Russell Westbrook (23, earlier this season) as players in the last decade with 20 straight double-doubles.Heat: Miami opened on an 8-0 run, its best to start a game this season. … It was Miami’s 600th sellout at AmericanAirlines Arena — the last 413 of those coming consecutively — and 900th home sellout overall. … The Heat celebrated Pride Night, and the national anthem before the game was performed by the South Florida Gay Men’s Chorus.EIGHT IS ENOUGHThere have been four instances of a team holding another to eight points or less in a quarter this season. Miami is responsible for three of them. Houston held Chicago to seven in the third quarter on Nov. 3 — and the rest of the list is all Heat. Miami held the Los Angeles Clippers to eight points in the fourth quarter on Dec. 8, and kept the Milwaukee Bucks to that many in the first quarter on Dec. 22.WADE BLOCKS Minus Kevin Durant, Warriors stop Rockets’ 9-game win streak LATEST STORIES Wade had a first-quarter blocked shot against Detroit’s 7-foot-1 Thon Maker. It was the 879th block of Wade’s career, leaving him 14 shy of Michael Jordan’s all-time regular-season record for guards. When adding playoff games, Wade already has more blocks than any guard in history.SLOW STARTDetroit has trailed after the first quarter in each of its last five games, and the 12-point deficit after 12 minutes in this one matched the Pistons’ third-largest, after-one-quarter hole this season.

Detroit missed its first 11 shots of the third quarter, eight of them from 3-point range.The Pistons have now dropped consecutive games for the first time since Jan. 25 and 29 — and both were blowout losses, with this one on the heels of a 103-75 rout in Brooklyn on Wednesday.“It’s about our mental fortitude and coming out and having a better mindset at the beginning of games, myself included,” Griffin said. “I’m not excluding myself from that at all.
