The Walk will start at 6pm on the 27th of August 2015 in Bath Avenue outside the Rosebank Mall in Johannesburg. Equipped with torches to light up the night, walkers will wind their way through the surrounding suburb to end in Craddock Avenue before moving onto the well-known Rosebank Rooftop for a celebration with several SHOUT Ambassadors, local opinion leaders and the community.
Entry is via a web portal at https://in2events.canbook.me/ltnwalkjhb and costs R150.00 per person.
The “Light the Night” inaugural walk will take place in aid of SHOUT for a Safer South Africa with funds raised being used to build a container library in Alexandra Township. The Project has been endorsed by Crimeline.
Danny K, Co-Founder of SHOUT comments, “Our mantra here at SHOUT is: “If we don’t EDUCATE, we will never ERADICATE the need to INCARCERATE. There are three libraries that SHOUT has financed and built through the generosity of South Africans in Limpopo Province, Mitchells Plain & Freedom Park, Soweto. The impact on the lives of the children and the community is immense and allows for improvement all round in terms of their upliftment and social cohesion. Nothing can be of more importance than to ensure that our children are given the best opportunity to live as productive South Africans in a country that is free of crime and corruption. However this is not something a few people can do on their own, it is a task which requires the involvement of all South Africans and Light the Night is a fun and social way for the community to get involved.”
Danny K concludes, “Our generation must do whatever it takes to facilitate this and we are all accountable to our children. Let us be the lamplighters that shine a light on the path to education that our children must walk and be there to hold their hands with our unconditional love and support. This is our plea to everyone. Thank you for supporting our project”
