Run for Wild Life
Following the success of the first Run for Wildlife event in 2007, Nedbank Malawi once again supported the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre in its fundraising activities by sponsoring the Run for Wildlife 2008 Marathon. On 31 May 2008 over 600 runners, and thousands of spectators, came together to participate in the event, which raised US$16 000 towards the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre’s work in providing a sanctuary space for rescued, confiscated, orphaned and injured wild animals of Malawi.
2008 Lake Malawi Yachting Marathon
Nedbank Malawi sponsored the Malawi racing crew and their boat on the world’s longest fresh-water race at the 2008 Lake Malawi International Yachting Marathon championship. The 24-year-old race, which is held every year in July to take advantage of the south-easterly winds, spans 450km and lasts six days. The event included 22 participants from South Africa, Botswana and Malawi.
