Sweeping through 47 communities for 67 minutes, Planet Fitness laced up their takkies, changed pace, and took to the streets this Mandela Day, geared to clean up 47 neighborhoods that included Hammanskraal on 18 July 2022, in a workout that was a great reminder of moving together to make a difference.
No matter what the scale, every year on Mandela Day, people are encouraged to get involved to do what they can, with what they have, where you are around the world for 67 minutes to mark the 67 years spent by Mandela as a public servant.
“With 47 fitness Clubs around South Africa, our staff was all fired up and quick off the starting blocks to get out there and spend 67 minutes cleaning the streets to get their neighborhoods back into shape,” said Mike Hewan, Head of Marketing at Planet Fitness South Africa.
Nelson Mandela was a great believer in exercise and has been quoted as saying that it is key not only to having physical health but to peace of mind.
Mr. Hewan said those words certainly resonate with us and the feel-good factor of getting our teams together out in our communities to make a small difference to honour Mandela was invigorating, it got our hearts pumping and our minds thinking – such a positive moment for the people of our country to come together and help one another.
