Sisters With Blisters Walk 2011

What an amazing experience it was for an amazing cause!

We were up at 5am to make sure that we were ready for the first walk which kicked off at 7h30 this Saturday morning!

Sisters With Blisters is an initiative started by Jacaranda FM and involves thousands of people walking and taking a stand against woman and child abuse. And literally thousands of people pitched up for todays event.

We got onto the float to kick the first walk off and already I was in awe of the amount of people that came out to support the initiative. If the first walk was anything to go by then the rest was definitely going to be amazing!

It was not soon until we decided to get off the float and join the men and woman in the walk, some in heels and some in fairy outfits all sporting pink!! Even some of the guys were wearing heels! I take my hat off to them as 8km is quite a distance to do in heels, but well worth it!

The dog walk took off soon after with some canines sporting their own pink endowed outfits!

After having a quick lunch and something to drink we made our way to the starting point again to kick off the last walk of the day and this time around the masses of people walking had multiplied in size!

As we encouraged the ladies along the route it was clear that there was a lot of support for this cause and I am pretty sure that next year the turnout is probably going to double in size!

If you have not yet done the walk yet I urge you to join us next year and show your support! I know I will be doing it every year from now on and remember, it does not end at the finish line, this is something that people have to live by and constantly push to reduce woman and child abuse.

Thank you to Jacaranda for taking the time out to organize something so amazing all in aid of charity! You guys are super stars in my books!
