Race for Faith 2014

Posted at June 9, 2014 | By : | Categories : Care for Employees,Latest News,Northern Region | Comments Off

For the second consecutive year Thorburn employees from Gauteng participated in the Race for Faith road race at Willow Acres and Silver Lakes estates in Pretoria.  Regional Manager, Reinardt Rall, himself a keen harrier and participator, once again arranged eager personnel to take part despite the bracing winter cold. Earlier this year a team of Thorburn runners also participated in a race in Secunda in Mpumalanga and have at least another two such events scheduled for later this year.

Soccer matches and road running are part of the cornerstones of our social programs and play an important role in the Thorburn employee wellness program.  We encourage our employees to lead a healthy lifestyle, especially to counteract the impact that shift work can have on an individual, as this contributes towards the minimization of fatigue in the workplace.   June and July are anti-fatigue focus months at Thorburn Northern Region whereby we drive awareness of the symptoms and also prevention of fatigue.

Estate Manager (and our client at Willow Acres Estate), Braam Lotter, thanked the team for their participation in what has become a popular annual event at the estate.
