Get ready to walk for a cause

Registrations for the 12th annual Avon Justine iThemba Walkathon are officially open. This was announced at a media launch hosted by beautiful veteran actress Tina Jaxa at the Inanda Club in Sandton last week. As part of the launch, organisers; Avon Justine announced partnerships with Woman& and Kaya FM as well as NGOs Wings of Hope and Look Good…Feel Better who will help make the event the biggest yet, while amplifying key breast cancer awareness messages that could save lives.

With over 29 000 participants in 2016, the iThemba Walkathon is the largest breast cancer awareness event in the Avon world which consists of over 50 countries. The 2017 edition will take place on Sunday, 22 October at Marks Park in Johannesburg and is limited to 35000 participants.

All participants are required to pre-register and can do so on at just R135 per adult and R90 per child. Registrations can also be made on printed entry forms obtainable from participating Sportsman Warehouse stores.

When registering participants can also buy a Woman&Home magazine ribbon for only R20 which they can wear while walking and then dedicate on the Trees of Hope. This will be the fourth time participants can dedicate their messages on the Tree of Hope, an immensely emotional part of the iThemba Walkathon.

Quite importantly participants can also select additional services such as the park-and-ride when they register helping to ensure they have a seamless experience throughout including on the morning of the event.

On the day, participants have loads of exciting activities to look forward to including live performances, meeting their favourite local celebrities including the Kaya FM presenters and personalities as well as the #PoutForAPurpose lipstick challenge.

Thousands of shades of pink have comprised the palettes of Avon Justine’s blushes, lipsticks and eye shadows over the years. The most important hue is the one representing the company’s crusade against breast cancer.
