Pink, most certainly was not the colour of sissies as thousands of people came out in masses this past Sunday to walk in solidarity at the 2013 Avon Justine iThemba Walkathon.

Promoting the notion that ‘Early Detection Saves Lives’, the annual walkathon is a crusade which is walked by many who are in support of those either suffering from cancer, those who have lost the battle to cancer and those who have survived the illness.

The Tutuka team came to the party again this year, donning our pink and white t-shirts, a positive attitude and big smiles. There’s nothing quite like starting your Sunday morning off with a 5km walk, and with our crazy bunch, it sure was entertaining and the best part of it all was that it was all done in aid of a good cause.

Our numbers may have started off small at first, but Team Tutuka was as enthusiastic as ever to get the show on the road and start walking.

On your marks, get set, GO!! Team Tutuka proved that a smile really does go a long way, the 5km walk seemed like a breeze with Tutukans full of smiles from the get go

Even the tiny Tutukans came along and showed off what great sports they were

A Tutuka totem pole? What’s a team without the team work?

Pink was the new black at Sunday’s walk as avid walkers dressed up and pulled out all the stops to show just how supportive they were of the cause

Even among the crowds of walkers, Team Tutuka stood out from the rest, walking kilometer by kilometer with ease

We did it! Barely breaking a sweat, Team Tutuka made it to the end, all smiles still intact

What’s a team event without a victory meal to seal the deal? After a fun walk, Team Tutuka enjoyed a well-deserved lunch with our very own Tutuka waiter

With a good spirit, a good team, great attitudes and a hearty lunch, it’s safe to say that Team Tutuka did their part in fighting for the cause of cancer. Avon Justine iThemba Walkathon, see you again next year!
