We’re excited to announce that Blind SA has been registered as a charity at the MTN Walk The Talk with 702 event this year.

To promote the occasion, we invite all our friends, member organisations, and affiliates to come along and take part in the walk. It takes place at the Marks Park Sport Club, Emmarentia, on Sunday 23 July.

With 5km, 8km, and 15km distances to choose from, the walk has become a major and popular annual event for people from all walks of life, and all fitness levels. The 5km and 8km distances allow for wheelchair entrants, as well as families with prams and their dogs! The 15km event is restricted to walkers only.

Please hurry to get your entry registered – entries close on Friday 2nd June, OR once 50 000 entries have been reached.
