Diacore Gaborone Marathon (DGM) has donated P400,000 for the renovations of the stadium squash club in Gaborone.

Chairperson of DGM Foundation, Thola Magang said during the handover ceremony that the funds would go a long way in giving the club the much-needed facelift.

He said DGM has always been a supporter of a holistic approach to national sports and athletics development and funding the refurbishment of the squash club is a perfect testament to this. “Since the title sponsor, Diacore adopted the race in 2012, it has grown from 3,000 to well over 5,000 participants with over a million Pula being awarded to over 30 deserving charities by Diacore in conjunction with co-sponsors being Stanbic Bank, Mascom and GIA,” said Magang.
