The “Purple Ladies” are a familiar sight to our regular walkers. “We very much enjoy this event and look forward every year to participating,” says member Wanda Stewart. “Although we have reached an age where we could walk a lesser distance, we continue to take part in the 20-kilometre walk on both days.”
Two members of the group have walked with us more than 10 times while Wanda is walking for her gold (year 10) medal this year.
These active women meet at a different location every Sunday and walk for at least 10 kilometres. In addition to walking, the friends participate in many other sporting activities, including running, cycling, netball, swimming, aqua-aerobics, Pilates and bridge.
