About the Cool Summer Run


About the Race

The Cool Summer Run 2km, 5km and 10km Trail Race - 7 October 2017

       

My wife, Jizanne Taberer, and I have a passion for children and as a couple we head up the Children's Ministry at the River Church in East London called the River Kidzone.

The "Cool Summer Run" is aimed at raising funds to enable River Kidzone to reach out to the children in the Eastern Cape who are either orphans, been abandoned, neglected, rejected, or suffering from an illness, chronic disease or do not have a healthy family life, loss of a father and/or mother figure, verbal or physical abuse in the home, as well as visiting oncology wards.

Our vision, as part of the River Kidzone, is to reach out to these children and families to make a difference in their lives by getting the community involved and supporting what can change a child's life for a healthier and better future.  All these children want is to know that they are loved and cared for, appreciated and have a place where they feel they belong. At the Kidzone we aim at helping children live their God given purpose.

We will be hosting  the "Cool Summer Run" in East London, 14km's outside of the town on the main road towards Stutterheim, on a beautiful farm known as the "Silver Seed Tomato Farm" owned by Derrill & Alison Hempel. A wonderful couple who have bought into the vision of the Kidzone as well as the "Cool Summer Run" to help fund and make a difference in these children's lives.

The "Cool Summer Run" will take place 7 October 2017. The 10km trail challenge, starting at 14:00, the 5km fun trail run, starting at 14:10pm and the 2km Kiddies Splash, starting at 14:20pm. All our participants will enjoy the breath-taking views along their route.  There will be market stalls selling freshly homemade baked and cooked foods as well as cool refreshments for the afternoon.

It will be exciting times for the children as we introduce our very own Christian Superhero, "FAITHMAN", who will be flying around the start of the race. We will also have jumping castles and slippery slides to keep the children entertained.

We will have two main hosts for the afternoon that will run the entire race event which will all be captured for the broadcast. The sponsors will also get airtime mentions on Link FM for the advertising of the "Cool Summer Run" as well as posters, flyers, video clip adds on social media of the pre-race teaser footage.

The cost per race participant will be R120 for the 5km and 10km or R60 for the 2km, which includes your race package with sponsored goodies.

We are expectant for a great turnout and we believe that many children and families will benefit from this event.  Our hearts are to give back to the community of the Eastern Cape area and to reach out to the children in ensuring they live a healthy, joyful and Christ centred life.

We would love to have you partner with us and get on-board as part of the Team, because together everyone achieves more.

Heaven has gained one an incredible soldier. A gentleman, a husband, a father, a brother, and a great Uncle to many people. We salute you Derrill Hempel! We celebrate your life lived here on earth. You were one of the kindest and most generous men I knew and getting to know you and spend time with you and your family was amazing. It amazed me to see how close you all are as a family. You had so much passion and drive in all you did. You truly lived a great life of faith as a farmer and a believer by living a lifestyle of sowing and reeping continually. You have left a legacy for many to follow and live out. Not only for the farming community but for many others. You built God's Kingdom in so many ways! You were always willing to help others and see them succeed in all they did. Psalm 112:9 "They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever." You have taught us a lot and we are truly grateful. You were such a selfless gentleman, always seeing to others, availing yourself, your farm and home to others. You were a real visionary. You had a unique way of bringing people together, especially family, and those new years barn dances on the farm are memories I will treasure for a lifetime. Especially all the time we spent together during the Cool Summer Run. I always have this picture in my mind of your incredible smile with that thick mustache:) You faught a good fight and I know that you are celebrating with the King of kings and the Lord of lords, Jesus Christ, as you lived out such an incredible life with your wife and daughter's. You will always be remembered and we have many great memories to look back on with you. Thank you for all you did for us and everything you have taught us - Uncle Derrill we salute you today on an incredible journey and legacy. Lots of love Brad and Jizanne
