In collaboration with the Jane Bubear Sports Foundation, the 5th annual African Bush Camps Foundation 10km Fun Run was held in the village of Dete, in Hwange, Zimbabwe on the 6th of April 2013.
Held in Dete, the event sees surrounding communities take part in the race, together with a team of volunteers raising sponsorship both locally and internationally.
The aim of the event is to bring together the community in a positive context, as well as to build community spirit. It is also meant to benefit some of the remote villages who usually do not receive much assistance.
During the four day stay in Dete, the Jane Bubear Sports Foundation volunteers donated educational gifts and rugby shirts to local primary and secondary schools. In 2012, the Foundation provided one of the primary school’s with much needed modern equipment to enable them to get internet access for the first time, and delivered Sports Equipment kindly donated by Brentford FC to the Detema Secondary School First Boys Football Team.
