WOW – Shoes2Move
WoW! What an exciting Movement!
The Health Foundation is proud to work with the WoW! Healthy Lifestyles initiative in association with the Western Cape Government and its valued partners. WoW! (WesternCape on Wellness) promotes and activates Healthy Lifestyle Actions to prevent, reduce and better self-manage common chronic diseases. WoW! represents a novel transversal and cross-sectoral partnering approach to promote, activate, expand and maintain a healthy lifestyles movement across multiple settings, including: Worksite, Primary Healthcare Facility, School, Community and Public Space settings. See www.westerncape.gov.za/wow.
One facet of WoW! is about enabling people to live healthier lifestyles through MOVING – physical activity for health and fun!
If only they had Shoes2Move…
The WoW! Groups are working with lots of people, young and old, who want to start walking or running – to Move for better health – but they don’t have comfortable, supportive shoes. And they can’t afford to buy them. The Shoes2Move campaign calls on people and corporates to make donations, with which we will gift a new pair of basic exercise shoes to WoW! Club members who show commitment and regular attendance at their WoW! Group
