Elke, Kerstin und Cecilia are members of the Red Love Train. That means they are not only particpating in Comrades ultra marathon, no, they also do it for a good cause. Their signature mark are the red socks and a big smile. The Red Love Train is the supporter crew of the Unogwaja Challenge, that both support the Unogwaja Light Fund .
This year the Red Love Train has a partnership with the Community Chest Pietermaritzburg to help Umsilinga Primary School in Ezinktheni. The school 10 minutes away from Pietermaritzburg is visited by 1.200 students.

Nelson Mandela once said: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" and that is the core of Unogwaja Light Fund mission. John McInroy (Founder of the charity) underlines the meaning and importance of education:
"Education has the power to change everything and at the present we are facing a major eductaion crisis in South Africa and this should be considered a national priority."
And this is the reason why Comrades ultra marathon and the Red Love Train is a great chance for us girls to give something back to the community and collect donations to support the Unogwaja Light Fund.
Girls. Love. Comrades.
