Living in Cape Town or its surrounds? Looking for something to do that won’t take a lot of effort on the 25th of August 2013? Support the Blisters for Bread Charity Walk in Green Point, it’s for a good cause after all.
This event had its origins 45 years ago in 1968 when staff and learners from the Savio College in Lansdowne (along with Peninsula School Feeding Association) initiated a fun walk to raise funds for its school feeding program. The first few efforts were successful and the decision was made to expand the event into a bigger walk in which learners and school staff from the community were welcome to participate in, so Blisters for Bread was born. Over the years this event has grown into one of the biggest charity events on the Western Cape calendar. Last year a record 15,800 people participated in the Charity Walk and the organizers are hoping to top this figure this year.
Participating in this event won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Entries cost only R42 (and this will cover the cost of feeding 21 children a nourishing meal). Group Entries for this year’s event have already closed, but entries for individuals are only closing on the 18th of August 2013. So, if you’re interested in doing your bit for the community and participating in this event make sure that you get all the details that you need on the Top Events website. You can enter via e-mail, fax or online.
Entrants are encouraged to build up hype for the event by posting photos of themselves and their friends entering Blisters for Bread or getting ready for the next Sunday’s big walk on Twitter and Facebook profiles. The official hashtag for the event is #Blisters. Entrants can chose to do a 5 km, 10 km or 15 km walk and if you’re in a wheelchair you’re more than welcome to do 5 km or 10 km. All walks start and finish and the Green Point Cricket Club.
