Walk Your Way with Medshield at the 2024 Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk

The 2024 Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk is gearing up to unite the Durban community once again to celebrate health, fitness, and community spirit. With this year’s theme, “Walk Your Way,” the event promises an enriching experience for participants of all ages and fitness levels. Scheduled to take place on 26 May 2024, the Big Walk is a cornerstone event in Durban’s social calendar, promoting a holistic approach to well-being.

Kevin Aron, principal officer at Medshield, expressed his excitement about Medshield’s enhanced role in this year’s event, saying, “We are thrilled to be a part of the 2024 Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk and to contribute to the health and wellness of the KZN community. This event is more than just a walk; it celebrates vitality and community spirit.”

Medshield’s participation in this year’s Big Walk goes beyond previous years, reflecting the organisation’s commitment to promoting health and wellness. Under their official banner, Your Partner for Life, Medshield is set to offer participants a range of activities to enhance their holistic well-being.

Holistic health initiatives and exciting competitions

This year, Medshield’s involvement goes beyond last year’s registration-only partnership. One of the highlights is the presence of Medshield Movement ambassador Mapule Ndhlovu, affectionately known as “Queen Fitnass”.

Mapule will lead dynamic warm-up and cool-down sessions on race day, fully kitted in Medshield attire. Participants can look forward to interacting with Mapule, receiving spot prizes, and experiencing her vibrant energy firsthand.

“I’m honoured to be part of the 2024 Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk. It’s an incredible opportunity to inspire others to prioritise their health and wellness journey, and I’m excited to bring some fitness and fun to the event,” she says.

Furthermore, participants will have the chance to win a substantial cash prize of R10,000 by engaging with the Medshield team and completing various tasks, such as getting a medical aid quote and tagging Medshield on social media posts. These exciting initiatives underscore Medshield’s dedication to supporting the well-being of the KZN community.
