After the successful #Run4Wiings fundraiser in 2017 which saw GWW founder Koinonia Baloyi run the London Marathon to raise awareness & funds, we were inspired to utilise fitness more inclusively to continue to raise awareness and funds for GWW. We are ACTIVELY helping our communities.
Since 2017 to date, our founder has run the 2018 Cape Town Marathon, and Girls With Wiings was selected as an official charity partner for the Two Oceans Marathon 2020.
In August 2018, we launched #Fit4Wiings, an annual fitness day that allows the public to get active for a good cause. We hosted our first edition of #Fit4Wiings In August 2018. An outdoor boot camp hosted by local fit-fluencers, celebrities, and radio presenters. The event consisted of fun and exciting workouts suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It also included amazing prizes and giveaways on the day.
Since 2018 to date, we have hosted 2 annual #Fit4Wiings boot camp events and hosted our first Sports Day in 2021 which included a boot camp, netball, and soccer tournament. We have hosted over 600 participants at our #Fit4Wiings events.
Collectively, we have raised over R213,000 through our fitness for a cause platform
