Health walk

People came out in their numbers for Retreat hospital's annual walk. Physiotherapist Levona Johnson, who started the walk four years ago, speaks to the participants.

Despite the threat of rain, more than 500 people took part in the Retreat hospital’s 4th annual health walk on Tuesday February 26. The facility also held an open day on the same day. The health facility holds the 2km walk to promote healthy living and create disability awareness. Each received a medal at the finish line. The walk was dedicated to Henry Lemmetjies, the hospital’s facility manager who died earlier this year.
