Walkers raise R80 000 for hospice

This initiative came about some six years ago when Maria and her friend, Marinda Garrana, started walking together and participating in various fundraising walks. “We decided to organize our own fundraising walk in Bedfordview and today, our committee consists of 16 members, all of whom work extremely hard on this fundraiser – total dedication”, says Maria.

“We’ve heard so many good things about Stepping Stone Hospice and the incredible work done by the staff,” explains Maria. “This is the second year we’ve chosen them as a beneficiary and we also need to thank them for the work they do and the services they render to the patients and families.”

CEO of Stepping Stone Hospice, Tersia Burger, could hardly contain her emotions when the cheque was handed over. “A team of Stepping Stone Hospice, myself included, did the 7km walk on the day and the spirit of generosity and friendship on the day is something I will not forget easily. Through your commitment to our cause, we can keep our doors open,” she said.
