Walk for a Blanket 01 May 2013

“ Walk for a Blanket” is an initiative arranged by Esquire and the Caring Women’s Forum to assist GOTG in buying blankets to hand out to the needy in Pretoria. Participants in the fun walk had to pay a registration fee of R50 for adults and R20 for children and had the option of walking 5 or 7 kilometers. Registration fees were donated to GOTG as a further contribution toward blankets.

The event started at 8am at the Sedibane Modiba Sport Stadium, Laudium and by the end of it participants were promising to walk again next year. GOTG invited underprivileged kids from the surrounding community to join us on the day. The ECD Brainy Brats set up an entertainment centre for children which occupied them for hours. Each child attending the Brainy Brats ECD centre was asked to bring a gift for a child less fortunate than themselves. The gifts were handed over by the kids and this left a lasting impression on them on the importance of giving.

The ladies of the Caring Women’s Forum had food, cakes and beverages on sale whilst Esquire handed prizes over to our winners finishing in the top 3 positions.
