Social Awareness

The Jeppe Charity Hat Walk has become an annual event that each Jeppe Athletics member looks forward to.  This event began in December 2005 and has grown in size each year.  In 2007 we had 500 runners and walkers taking part in this special event.

The aim of this event is to support two local charities that are in need and to give back to our community and those less fortunate than ourselves.

As well as monetary contribution from the sale of the tickets our members collect perishable and non perishable groceries that we give to each one of the charities.





The walk starts at Jeppe Quondam and makes its way towards Little Eden, one of the charities we have supported over the 3 years.  In 2007 Jeppe made a contribution of R80,000-00 to the two charities we supported, Balwin Properties was a large contributor towards this giving R50,000-00 towards the R80,000-00.

The walkers then make their way back to Jeppe Quondam where they all enjoy a breakfast and special time together.
