A Heritage Day Fun Run to raise funds for disadvantaged learners will be held at 7 am on Saturday at the Rhodes University Great Field.
Funds will be managed by the Tuksie Educational Trust Fund, launched earlier this year in the name of Makhandan Felicia Ngeniswa Mbebetho-Nkwinti, better known as Tuksie.
Ma Tuksie away in December 2020. She started her career in Makhanda, later becoming a principal and isiXhosa educator at Leap Mathematics and Science School in Cape Town. Family members decided to set up a trust fund to honour her legacy of educational excellence, especially in disadvantaged schools.
Funds will be used to provide learners with uniforms and stationery.
