Join Zapper at the Youth Day Trail Run at Enanda Adventure Park

Friday, 16 June is Youth Day, a historic day when South Africans pay homage to the courage and sacrifice of the Soweto youth of 1976. As we commemorate events that changed the course of our country’s future, the born-free generation are encouraged to embark on a course of their own at the Durban Green Corridor Youth Trail Run.

For the fifth year in a row, the non-profit Durban Green Corridor organisation will host a fun trail run at the eNanda Adventure Park for more than 200 young people from disadvantaged communities in the surrounding area.

Unlike your everyday youth fitness challenge, the trail run is designed for girls and boys of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. A 5km beginner course has been designed for the 9-15 years old group, and a more challenging 10km route for the competitive and spirited 16-19 year olds, in an effort to promote healthy living through exercise and mental wellness through fun interactive activities.

Refreshment stops will be erected at various points along the course to ensure that each participant remains hydrated as they navigate the course, with medics patrolling the site to ensure the safety and well-being of the young runners.

Races kick off at 9am, with officials sounding the gun at the 12pm cut-off to signify the end of the race. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three runners in each category, and medals to the first 100 to finish, so that they can also be proud of their personal triumphs.

Zapper, South Africa’s premier mobile payment and lifestyle app have partnered with Durban Green Corridor and PWC to help make this event a success.  “The youth are the future of our country. By investing in upliftment programmes that encourages them to believe in their own potential, we build better leaders, who build better communities and ultimately a better tomorrow for all South Africans,” said Jessica Fowlds, Marketing Manager for Zapper. “We at Zapper are proud to be a part of such an inspired event.”

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…

50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
