Dog Walk, a tail-wagging success

The Discovery 702 Walk the Talk event, that took place on Sunday the 24th July 2011, was tail-wagging success. A staggering 55,000 people participated in the various walks and Pedigree registered 2,000 four-legged walkers for the 5km Dog Walk.

Pooches of all shapes and sizes did the wiggle and the waggle and although they were panting for breath, they were treated with delicious Pedigree treats and pools of water to splash in at the Pedigree Park.

Owners enjoyed a great South African braai after their healthy exercise session while being entertained by local artists such as Elvis Blue, PJ Powers, Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels.
