About the Gauteng Charity Mile

On Saturday, 4th of November 2006, Newmarket Race Course will play host to night racing when The Gauteng Charity Mile will be run. Sixteen horsemen and sixteen horses will race over a mile, each competing for a dedicated charity and each charity will be represented by a South African celebrity. Everyone wins, as each charity will receive a sizable donation sponsored by the Gauteng Provincial Government. The winning horse will earn R200 000 for the nominated charity.

Celebrities include local sporting hero’s including soccer star Dr Khumalo, boxers Hawk Makepula & Baby Jake Matlala, rugby hero’s Ollie LeRoux & Ashwin Willemse, model Kerry McGregor, Miss SA, media personalities Neil Andrews (Supersport) & Graeme Joffee (94.7 Highveld Stereo), to mention but a few.

Entrance is free to the event and all are welcome to come and back their favourite horse and support their favourite celebrity who will be standing at the side line urging their horse to come in first, to win the big prize for charity. Gates open at Newmarket Race Course from 16h00.
