What a fantastic day in South Africa! After reaching 300 participants last year, TNT Express South Africa did even more this year and saw the numbers increase and reach 459, the majority of which were TNT, DSM and WFP employees and their families.
The walk was set in the beautiful environment of the Pretoria National Zoo and also saw entertainment for the “walkers”: after crossing the finish line, were greated with games, music, and fun activities.
Mary Mashiane, National CR manager at TNT Express South Africa, believes that the initiative has been successful not only in raising funds but also in raising awareness on world hunger. “The number of South Africans participating in the event has grown. Last year over 300 people participated. We want to see these numbers increase inviting individuals and companies to join us in making sure that more and more children are provided for. I believe that if more of us add our commitment to initiatives like Walk the World, a lot more progress could be made”.
