Sport, Arts and Culture to host big walk in Pretoria
The Department of Sport, Arts and Culture, (DSAC) will this coming Sunday, 23rd October 2022 host one of its healthy lifestyle flagship programmes #National Big Walk under the theme #IChoose2BActive, how about you? One of the prime goals of the event is prearranged to inspire the public to take up the practice of walking, and encourage participation in walking as an easier tool of achieving a healthy lifestyle.
The Big Walk has seen massive growth since its debut back in 2012 by gradually turning into a 365-day call for action being led by the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture with the objective of urging all South African citizens to choose an active lifestyle. Having been held in Tshwane – Fountains Valley Resort for 5 years, this year the Big Walk is scheduled to take place with event details as follows:
Date: Sunday, 23 October 2022
Venue: commences at Fleur Primary School (Corner Molten Road and Hans Strijdom)
Finish: Ending at Fountains Valley
Commencing at Fleur Primary School and finish off at Fountains Valley Pretoria, the event will once more encompass 5km, 10km, and 15km routes and ending up with aerobics session and LIVE musical performance as part of event day entertainment. Billed as fun filled family entertainment event, the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture therefore invites members of the media to attend and cover event.
The Big Walk is held annually every October coinciding with World Walking Month.
