It’s almost time for the 12th Annual Avon Justine iThemba Breast Cancer Awareness Walkathon, and our sister magazine woman&home has once again partnered with Avon Justine for this fantastic event.
The walkathon will take place on 22 October at Marks Park in Emmarentia.
As the largest breast cancer awareness walk, with over 29 000 participants last year, the Avon Justine iThemba Walkathon presents the whole family the opportunity to #WalkForAPurpose.
After the walk everyone can enjoy an afternoon of memorable live performances with lots of entertainment fun for the kiddies too!
iThemba is a Zulu word meaning “hope”. To date, Avon Justine has raised in excess of R20 million through the sale of special “pink ribbon” products for breast cancer education, awareness and screening in South Africa.
Join the woman&home team as they put on our walking shoes for a good cause.
