Join us for a screening of ‘The Extra Mile’

The Jaguar Nation is proud and excited to #RunWithPardon as he competes as a member of the Zimbabwe marathon team in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio.

Pardon Ndhlovu grew up in Zimbabwe, and his dreams of attaining an education in America ultimately led him to Augusta University, where in December he earned his MBA from Hull College of Business. He is also a much-loved assistant coach for Jaguar cross-country and track and field.

The event is open to the public, so bring friends and family to wish Pardon well.

The Extra Mile is a documentary short following Pardon Ndhlovu, an Augusta University alumnus who will compete in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. You can watch the trailer here.

Join us as we celebrate Pardon’s Olympic journey with a screening of the 20-minute video and free #RunWithPardon T-shirts.
