After Eighteen Years with Run/Walk for Life
At 68 years Ria Botha had already completed 25,000km on the road. Ria is a walker and she has ”trees of medals to prove it”.

Ria did not have an life easy as a child. She was born with a rare disease -Ectodermal Dysplasia – which took years to be diagnosed and treated. She spent her entire childhood in special schools and hostels. Yet, she completed her matric and took a position as Typist-Data Processor in the Department Environmental Affairs...read more

An Interesting Challenge
Rika & I joined Run/Walk For Life in January 2014, after seeing the banner displayed at Howick Prep School. We had been inactive for a number of years and were hoping to gain fitness & lose some weight. What impressed us most about the programme was the scientific approach. As a researcher this was very important to me.

The way the programme and the leader guides you; enables you to start something you can actually continue for the rest of your life – which is the ultimate goal!

Also exercising after being inactive for a long time can be overwhelming and lead to injuries if not done correctly, but with RWFL your goals are achievable without any chance of injuries.
During our first sessions, we only covered a couple of hundred metres, gradually building up to us now walking 10km per session!

Mark, our programme leader, plays such an important part in guiding and motivating. His enthusiasm is contagious and his knowledge and input encourages one to keep trying and pushing yourself within the safe boundaries.
We now lead a far more active lifestyle, and enjoy being fit & having more energy.

Run/Walk For Life really changed our lives!
