‘The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) is proudly co-hosting the Totalsports Women’s Race, under the auspices of Western Province Association (WPA), taking place on
Sunday 1 st October 2023. Moreover, this event aligns with The Association for International Sport for All (TAFISA) – World Walking Day Initiative, which supports our commitment to fostering an active community.
DCAS is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles and mental wellness of its staff members and their families. By co-hosting the TWR, DCAS celebrates physical activity and mental well-being. Having families that walk together, talk together makes a positive impact to a productive working and social life.
Minister Anroux Marais Provincial MEC for DCAS, an avid walker, will START and participate in the
5km. This is what she has to say:
Quote: “It is very important that we focus on the holistic well-being of all the people of the Western Cape. Living active lifestyles is not only important for physical health but also promotes mental well-being. Our department remains committed to creating a healthy and connected Western Cape province and I will proudly join this walk to promote active lifestyles.”
DCAS, by co-hosting the TWR, sees this as a stepping stone to a Provincial Walk – ‘The Big Walk – for the active you!!’ – taking place on the first Sunday of October 2024!’
