The Mutare S.P.C.A. group did so much to make this annual marathon a success in every way and thanks to your support, this event raised a total of over $15 000: we are extremely grateful for your kindness and generosity, which made this possible. We loved HIVU and hope to be back for a proper holiday there in the very near future!
Once again, our grateful thanks and kindest regards,
Dave & Lyn McElvaine
