@Discovery_SA @JacarandaFM #SpringWalk Welcomed Spring With A Beat #Pretoria

Hi Guys, 

The 6th Annual Discovery Jacaranda FM Spring Walk was a resounding success as Spring Walkers interacted with the Jacaranda FM talent such as Breakfast show team, Tumi Morake and Martin Bester who did the 5km walk as well as the rest of the Jacaranda FM team. Almost 9000 participants 'Walked to the Beat' to welcome Spring at the Discovery Jacaranda FM annual Spring Walk this past weekend at the Pretoria National Botanical Gardens.

Everyone was prepared to shake off their winter blues in 5km, 8km and 15km walks, and this year’s new addition of an 8km run for those who wanted to push their limits. Festivities kicked-off bright and early with Jacaranda FM’s Thabiso 'Mack' Rapapali and Carla McKenzie firing the opening shot for the 15km race.

With Discovery as a partner, this meant participants also earned Vitality points for their participation in the SpringWalk. “The partnership with Jacaranda FM is a perfect fit for us as it brings out the core values of both businesses”, said Discovery’s Head of Sponsorships and Experiential Marketing, Iona Maclean.

After the morning’s healthy exercise, Dewald Wasserfall and Rubber Duc rocked the crowds, while others gathered in front of the big screens to catch the rugby championship clash between Australia and the Springboks. South African celebrities and fitness experts were spotted enroute. These included our very own former Miss South Africa, Liesl Laurie; Gavin Edward and the Bulls Rugby players who all enjoyed watching the rugby match. While parents enjoyed the stellar line-up, Spar kiddies’ area surely kept the little ones occupied.

“The resounding response and support received from our listeners always delights us. We are a family-orientated station and we pride ourselves with competitive content and entertainment,” says Kevin Fine, General Manager at Jacaranda FM.

“Thank you to Discovery, our listeners, the City of Tshwane and everyone who made this event a great success,” concludes Fine.
