The National Golden Games brings together teams comprising outstanding individuals from across the country, including Mr Josias Makololo (66) based in Soshanguve, Gauteng province. He serves as a distributor for NeoLife and represents Gauteng in the Ball Relays.

Mr Makololo is participating in the Golden Games for the second time, filled with excitement and eager anticipation for the event. He aims to contribute to his team’s success and secure victory in the Golden Games. He earned his place on the provincial team through competitive performances in regional, district, and provincial qualifiers, where he stood out as one of the top participants.

He joined sports to take his mind off things as he was still adapting to the passing of his son and wife. “Participating helps me to stay fit and keep my mind active. Elders need to manage their health so that they can suppress illnesses such as Diabetes and High Blood Pressure.” Emphasised Mr Makololo.

He feels that he does not receive enough support from his local community, and as such he wants to raise awareness on issues concerning health, especially chronic illnesses and mental health. He joined NeoLife as a distributor to help people stay healthy and frequently does presentations within his community and surrounding areas.

Mr Makololo encourages more elderly people to participate in the Active Ageing Programme and young people to take issues that concern their health and make exercising a habit earlier in their lives.
