Blisters For Bread, Charity Family Fun Walk

Blisters for Bread 2017

On Sunday 27 August, 2017, families, corporates, schools, clubs and friends will unite against hunger to walk either 5kms or 10kms in the 49th Blisters for Bread. The starting point for the event is on Fritz Sonnenberg Rd, outside the Green Point Cricket Club. The entries will be limited to 12 000 walkers. The entry fee will once again be R50 per walker.






A brief overview of Blisters for Bread

The event was started in 1968 by staff and pupils at the Savio College in Lansdowne who wanted to support PSFA. Eventually, Savio College teamed up with Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs and then Mayor of Cape Town, Richard Friedlander. The event was later handed over to PSFA to manage. PSFA owes a debt of gratitude to all involved in making this event what it is today. It is exciting to see people from all walks of life come together with a common goal in mind – support PSFA’s mandate to feed hungry children, and have fun!

Blisters for Bread is a success because we have valuable partnerships with companies and organisations that make the event a pleasure for the walkers, and a worthwhile fundraising event for PSFA.

The aim of the event is not limited to raising funds. ‘Blisters’ is an outstanding awareness campaign attracting new members of the donor community, who are not aware of the problem of hunger in schools, and who do not know about the work that PSFA does to alleviate this problem. It is seen as a fun, safe, family event that gets Capetonians and visitors together to unite against hunger, experience the beauty of the mother city, and to interact with new and interesting people.

Now in its 49th year, Blisters for Bread has grown from a small event, to become one of the highlights on the Cape Town events calendar. PSFA’s 2016 Blisters for Bread Charity Family Fun Walk held at the Green Point Cricket Club on Sunday 28 August attracted 13 624 registered walkers and managed to raise a total of R681 200. 100% of this amount will be used to provide 1 724 hungry children with a nutritious breakfast and lunch while at school for an entire year!

Ms Anroux Marais, the MEC of Cultural Affairs and Sport and Mr Yusuf Kader, the Chairperson of PSFA started the 10km walk. The reigning Miss South Africa, Ntandoyenkosi Kunene started the 5km walk. Both the MEC and MIss SA, various other Government officials and sport and entertainment celebrities, walked the talk and participated in 5km and 10km walks.

The event received extensive pre and post coverage on major television channels, radio stations newspapers and websites. WP Media publication, People’s Post, Tygerburger and City Vison and Heart FM were the media partners.
