Zee TV is excited to once again be in partnership with the Gandhi Walk 2017. This 32nd historic annual initiative will be taking place on Sunday 23 April in Lenasia, Johannesburg.
This year it marks a huge milestone for Zee TV Africa to partner with a worthy cause. In keeping with its theme of good health, qualified personnel from Lenmed Health Ahmed Kathrada Private Hospital will be on site to offer the public free medical tests: checking their cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.
The Gandhi Walk initiative recognises and supports organisations and individuals who have made a difference to the community at large. Over the last three decades, the walk has created a platform for nation building and proven to be a great day out for the whole family to enjoy and socialise.
Chairman of the Gandhi Walk Committee says the initiative is more than just a walk for charity, it also donates annually to a few philanthropic organisations.
There will be fun activities to keep the little ones entertained. After the walk, entertainment by the Gandhi Walk organisation will be in full force with a Fusion-Mela show commencing from noon. Many spot prizes will be handed out at random to the public throughout the day.
The Gandhi Walk and Fun Run will start and finish at Gandhi Hall, Impala Crescent Ext 5 in Lenasia. For a minimal entry fee of R30, participants have a choice to participate in the 12km run, 12km walk or 6km walk. The first 3 000 participants to complete the walks and run will receive a commemorative t-shirt and trophies will be awarded to the winners as well as other sponsored prizes by Zee.
“The Gandhi Walk is an event that is very close to the heart of Zee TV. We launched our channel on 2 October 1992 in India and then launched the channel four years later on 2 October 1996 in Africa and there is no coincidence that these dates are in keeping with the Gandhi Jayanti. This year the Gandhi Walk will be bigger and better than ever before and we at Zee Africa are very excited to see all our viewers supporting this worthy cause,” said CEO of Zee TV Africa Harish Goyal.
