Sweet Life Community Walk

Let’s gather together for the Sweet Life Community Walk

Join us to celebrate November and the Sweet Life community for the #SweetLifeWalk. Walk, run, wheelchair or just join in for the morning to soak up the vibes.

“We’re all in this together” is the most powerful message we share as a community.
It’s time for the Sweet Life Community Walk.


Saturday, 18th November 2023 at 9am.


We will set up 3-5km Sweet Life Walk events in Durban, Joburg and Cape Town, headed by key community members.
Registration begins at 8.30am, and the walks will end in picnic meet-ups already organised by the community.

  • Joburg: Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, Thomas Bowler parking.
  • Cape Town: Green Point Park, West Gate entrance.
  • Durban: Durban Botanical Garden, Main entrance.

All these events will start at 9am, and for those who can’t join us, we’ll make virtual walk materials available so you can join from anywhere in South Africa!


To celebrate our Sweet Life community.
