GEORGE NEWS - 120 marshals are needed along the OCC (Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge) route on 20 February to assist Traffic and Law Enforcement officials with traffic and crowd control at crucial crossings.
Marshals are allocated to a specific location on the route and must be available from 07:00 to 12:00 depending on the location.
The event will continue even in bad weather which requires marshals to be dependable.
Any person or organisation willing is asked to urgently contact Jenny Becker on 083 6282 494 or e-mail email@example.com
A marshal meeting will be held on Monday 15 February at Emmaus in Memoriam Street at 18:00. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
Participants have to take part in a wheelchair but many arrive in George without one because they are not wheelchair bound. Due to the shortage of wheelchairs they then walk the 10km and Fun Event.
Anyone able to lend a wheelchair to the OCC can contact Cynthia Boltman on 044 802 2000 or e-mail Cynthia@george.org.za to make arrangements for collection.
“The OCC has a reputation of being one of the safest races in the world and we would like to continue this with your assistance and support,” said committee member Marita Swanepoel.
