Back in 2012 the TAC formed a famous ‘bus’ in the Soweto Marathon made up of over 100 people. This helped a group of runners living with HIV to sing and run to the finish line of their first ever marathon. It was a victory on many levels. After that the TAC launched a group called “Runners and Walkers for Health” to promote running and walking as part of healthy living for people with HIV. This year the TAC has another group of runners living with HIV registered for the Soweto Marathon who will wear their distinctive HIV positive vests, sing as we run and hand out condoms and information about healthy living throughout the marathon.
The Soweto Marathon marks the start of a month long fundraising drive, which aims to raise much needed funds to continue the critical work of the TAC. A press conference on Monday 27th October at 2pm will take place to update the media on the marathon and the broader fundraising campaign.
