Two weeks ago on this blog, PPI-SA announced their plans to participate in the 2013 Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk to promote active, healthy lifestyles. As ambassadors for sport in the region, PPI-SA felt it was imperative to show up and support the largest athletics event of the year in Durban. All of PPI-SA’s office staff, along with several coaches, participated.

The 5K walk took place this past weekend with more than 30,000 people walking the Durban beachfront under beautiful, sunny skies. We just wanted to pop back in to share some photos with you all!  Once again, thanks to Laureus for sponsoring our registration fees and providing us with cool shirts and hats.
