Registration is now open for the 16th edition of the iThemba Walkathon, which will once again be a virtual walk. Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s walk will again feature decentralised walks, encouraging participants to walk in small groups in their local neighbourhood across the country.
“The third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is upon us, and we need to painstakingly heed the health and safety protocols aimed at curbing the further transmission of the virus. It is equally important that we should also keep the momentum in the fight against breast cancer by supporting frontline organisations and people infected and affected by breast cancer. This year we’re inviting all iThemba Walkers to walk with a purpose, to join the crusade against breast cancer, to give from the heart and take some time to walk with us and help us raise funds for a good cause. We urge everyone to join us as we paint South Africa pink as a sign of our pledge to fight breast cancer.” – Mafahle Mareletse, Managing Director of Avon Justine Turkey, Middle East & Africa
The second virtual iThemba Walkathon will be held on Sunday, 3 October 2021 and participants from across the country are invited to register for the event and join the worldwide crusade against breast cancer. This means that registered participants can join the iThemba Walkathon wherever they are, as long as they comply with health and safety protocols.
Avon Justine staff and select influencers in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Polokwane will also join the walk from the respective CANSA offices in the various regions. Numbers for each of these regional walks will be kept in line with the current Covid-19 regulations. All the Walkathon activity from across the country will be shared on the official iThemba Walkathon social media platforms including, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Registration entries for the walkathon are R180 for adults and R100 for children. iThemba Walkathon Walkers can register online at www.ithembawalkathon.co.za or in-store at select Sportsmans Warehouses.
