This year due to Covid-19 we are trying something new;

a 5km Fun Run / Walk virtually, so grab a friend, partner,  kid/s AND your dog(s) and let’s have some fun!

 Event Timing: 3rd / 4th October 2020

Event Address: Home / Park / Road

 This is a FUNdraiser within a Fundraiser; proceeds from human registrations will benefit the HillSide Methodist Community Church BUT the proceeds from the four-legged registrations will benefit our feathered friends:  the Brainy Birds Parrot Rescue and Rehabilitation Sanctuary. 

Brainy Birds is a non-profit animal welfare organization based in Edenvale: They  take care of 250+ parrots that are not able to be rehomed, due to the extent of neglect and abused that they have suffered.  They are desperately trying to raise R 1 Million to secure the purchase of the property that has been their home for the last 5 years. (

 How it works: complete this registration form:

The entry fee(s) are to please be paid into the HillSide Church Account: FNB – Karaglen Branch – Cheque Account in the name of: Methodist Church of Southern Africa HillSide Society  Account # 6208 9025 847. Reference 5km and your name, e.g. “5km JJones” Entry fee: R 50 human / R 20 furry friend.

Then all you will need to do is provide a photo of you and your pooch participating;)

 Please remember to stay safe, practice social distancing at all times,  wear your mask and don’t forget your sun block – and be mindful of the road temperature on your dog/s paws.  (We recommend walking your dog in the morning or evening when it’s cooler to reduce the risk of heatstroke and burning their paws on the pavement).
