Do you want to win some brownie points at school and have fun at the same time? It is all so easy – all you have to do is take part in the SPAR Women’s Challenge at The Wanderers Sporting Club in Illovo, Joburg on Sunday October 11 and you can help your school stand a chance of winning Mecer laptops and all in one printers.
There are two parts to the Challenge – you can either take part in the 10km Challenge or else you can opt for the 5km Fun Run and the great news is that walkers are welcome in both races. The school with the most finishers on race day will win the grand prize of a Mecer laptop with software and an all in one colour printer, copier, scanner and fax. Schools with the second and third highest number of finishers will each win a Mecer laptop with software; and the second place school taking away an all in one mono printer, copier, scanner and fax. Schools must have at least 20 entries to qualify for the prize.

That’s not all, there are some really great prizes on offer – the best is groceries for a year in the form of SPAR vouchers worth R15 000 – can you imagine your mother’s face if you come home with a prize like that.

Just think of the fun you can have while helping your school. You could organise a competition within a competition – why not try to see which class can get the most number of girls to take part, or you could have an inter-house competition – perhaps the winning class or house could be the ones to get first use of the computer?

The race itself is great fun – thousands of women out to enjoy themselves. You and your friends can catch up on some important talk time, with no-one telling you to keep quiet or walk in line! There is always great entertainment at the finish, and there’s a real party atmosphere.
The first 15 000 people to enter the race will receive a free race t-shirt at registration, and the first 15 000 to finish will receive a medal and a goodie bag. This year’s t-shirt are coloured a lovely pink that will look good on anyone, so it is well worth entering the race just for the t-shirt.

It is very important to get your school’s entries in before the closing date of September 26 – that’s next week! Only pre-entries will be considered for the laptop and printer prize and just as important, only pre-entries will receive the free t-shirt.

Entry forms are available at all SPAR, SUPERSPAR and KWIKSPAR stores or you can enter online at Don’t delay – enter today! Just think how popular you will be if you help your school win one of those laptops.
