Our weekend Walking the Walk in South Africa

43
It has been a really special few days for us here at Laureus as one of our busiest weekends took place in South Africa with a host of our Academy members and Ambassadors.
Taking part in what has become the largest mass participation event in the whole of Africa, Academy members Morne du Plessis and Mark Spitz joined with countless fitness enthusiasts at Johannesburg's Walk the Talk.
This event has been, for some time now, a great opportunity for families to get together and enjoy the great South African city on foot. And, despite being the winter over there, and much to our jealousy here in London, the event was held in fantastic weather.
It was great to see some of our Academy members having such a fantastic time with so many of the participants...
But it wasn't all fun for the sport heroes...
The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation South Africa is one of the official charities of Walk the Talk and received a portion of funds raised.
And we are happy to say it is the Laureus project Johannesburg Cubs, who do excellent work offering multi-racial and cross-cultural cricket training to school children in the area, which will benefit directly from these funds.
Did you take part in this year's Walk the Talk? Have you taken part in similar events in the past? We would love to hear what made yours so special…
