The KwaZulu-Natal Working on Fire Albert Falls and Umngeni Teams participated in the Ngiyendoda Emadodeni Men’s March which took place in the Pietermaritzburg City Centre.

Sithole says, “I’ve loved running since primary school and the passion continued into high school.  I’ve entered various running competitions since then, such as the Spar Women’s Race.”

Superbly fit, Sithole completes the WOF 2.4km run in 10:30 minutes.

She also enjoys competing during the Yellow Card Training Camp to improve her finishing time.

“I’ve seen that by working hard and committing myself, I can move forward in life. Through dedication, I was able to complete rope access training,” she says.

Sithole took first place for women and second place overall running against men and women in the Fun Run and Walk event.

“I am very proud of my achievement. This Woman’s Month I encourage other women to never give up on their dreams. Train, train and train more to accomplish in life,” says Sithole.
