Fun Walk a huge success

More than 300 people turned up at the Durban Beachfront on a beautifully sunny Saturday morning to participate in our first ‘Old School is Cool’ family fun walk, in partnership with Tyson Properties. From babies in prams to seniors in wheelchairs … mums, dads, teenagers and toddlers, corporate groups, and grandparents with walking sticks – all enjoyed the walk from the Amphitheatre to Ushaka Marine World and back, and the TAFTA Revellers entertainment at the finish.

Winners received their prizes from our CEO Margie Smith. How encouraging to see so many ‘oldies’ among the winners!

2km results:
1st – Serina Gopichund (13)
2nd – Vasantha Perumal (65)
3rd – Wendy Cowley (58)

5km results:
1st – Terence Giles (44)
2nd – Hester Bekker (79)
3rd – Francois VR (66)
