SPAR Eastern Cape Marketing Director Abri Swart welcomes you to the 2019 SPAR Women's Challenge on Saturday, May 4

Be Bold. Be Courageous. Be Frivolous. Be Happy. Be Healthy. Be Powerful.

On Saturday May 4, a wave of grey shirts worn by thousands of women, united in their strength as women, will move from Pollok Beach through the streets of Summerstrand. Running, walking and laughing is part of the beauty of the SPAR Women’s Challenge.

Once again we invite you to come and join us in a spirit of family and female camaraderie. Whether you are an active runner, or just out for a leisurely 5km jog, come and join the fun.

Come and be part of the first leg of one of South Africa’s most iconic races where many of the country’s leading long distance runners will be vying for points in the SPAR Grand Prix Series.

And who knows, the fitness and fun bug might bite.

The joy of sharing exercise, a healthy lifestyle and time with friends can help to lift you up above the drudgery of everyday living.

Last year, we at SPAR Eastern Cape launched our STOP Plastic campaign in an effort to change mindsets, change how people think and how they use plastic.

Apart from the fact that by September 2018 more than 3 million fewer plastic bags had been released into society, the campaign had a huge effect in creating a wave of awareness.

Since then many other corporates also have been mobilised into changing their mindsets. And we cannot stop because this is a campaign that can only grow.

And being part of the Women’s Challenge will shout out loud that YOU are part of this wave.

This year too, your involvement in the Women’s Challenge will align you with the ever-growing need to support organisations like Sanitary Sista’s which support the many young women who are unable to afford sanitary protection.

And so this year as we celebrate our 26th year in the Eastern Cape, we thank you for your support.

And we look forward to sharing time with you as you embrace the friendly, family ethos of SPAR and the Women’s challenge, with the same passion that our retailers embrace, serving you.

Enjoy the day!
