Triumph over tragedgy: The Cape Argus in Cape Town, South Africa, reported yesterday that more than 200 people from as far away as California participated in the first-ever Amy Biehl fun run in Cape Town.
Several Biehl relatives attended the event to raise money for a multipurpose center for the youths in Guguletu. Biehl, a white Fulbright Scholar from La Quinta, Calif., was volunteering in the all-black Guguletu township in 1993 when she was murdered by a mob of angry teenagers.
Biehl's parents have taken up where their daughter left off.
