With over 29 500 participants in 2017, the iThemba Walkathon is the largest breast cancer awareness event in the Avon world which consists of over 50 countries. The 2018 edition promises to be the best yet although it will be limited to just 30 000 participants.

When registering participants can also buy a woman&home magazine ribbon for only R30 which they can wear while walking and then dedicate on the Trees of Hope. This will be the fourth time participants can dedicate their messages on the Tree of Hope, an immensely emotional part of the iThemba Walkathon.

Quite importantly participants can also select additional services such as the park-and-ride when they register helping to ensure they have a seamless experience throughout including on the morning of the event. “ We want participants to have a positively emotional experience that will reinforce their support of the breast cancer crusade not just through the iThemba Walkathon but by also spreading potentially life-saving breast cancer information  on the issue,” said Vicky Saunders-Flaherty, Avon Justine Communications & Events Manager.

ABBA Tribute - Mike McCully & The Harmonix

Mike McCully (McCully Workshop and Buccaneer fame) has again put together another tribute show, this time featuring the fantastic music of ABBA. With an All-Star cast, this show first came to prominence in 2014 at Grand West Casino and ran for two sell-out seasons!

This time Mike himself is on drums and vocals and leads the amazing cast comprised of bassist extraodinaire Neil Payton, the multi-talented Warren Lomberg on guitars and vocals and keyboard wizard, Gordon Mackay( like Mike from McCully Workshop) on violin, keys and vocals.

The two girls making up the Abba group (both Agnetha and Freda look-alikes) are the awesome Sjanel Vosloo and the amazing Luella Holland. Both girls were in the original show at Grand West.

Patrons will be encouraged to sing along to their favourite ABBA songs like WATERLOO, RING RING, CHIQUITITA, FERNANDO, MONEY MONEY MONEY, DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW, GIMME GIMME, VOULEZ VOUZ, NAME OF THE GAME, THE WINNER TAKES IT ALL, MAMA MIA, DANCING QUEEN and many more.

Recently the show was performed again at Grand West to a sell-out crowd and the audiences went ballistic!
