The Shuffling Walking Team donated a whopping R140 000 to Stepping Stone Hospice & Care Services on Monday October 7, 2019, funds raised at their 8th Annual Family Fun Walk that took place on Sunday 28 July 2019 in Bedfordview.

Over the years, The Shuffling Walking Team donated thousands of rand to non-profit organizations who mostly deal with cancer related issues. Stepping Stone Hospice has always been one of the beneficiaries of this amazing event “and for that, we are eternally grateful,” says CEO of hospice, Tersia Burger.

The walk, with its aim to raise cancer awareness, offered three routes, a 2km, a 5km and and a 7.9 km through the beautiful streets of Bedfordview, with over 3000 walkers participating. The incredible amount of R768 709 was raised through this effort, breaking all previous records.

“This event is most definitely one of the highlights of the year for us, it’s brilliantly organized and the team, with their endless amount of energy and positivity, is a huge inspiration to us. Thank you from all of us, but mostly from our patients who benefit from your hard work and generosity,” says Tersia.
