Cape Town Charity Event by Laura Scanlon

Hey guys, 

Wishing you all an amazing week ahead.

I had the honour of being apart of a special event last Saturday. It was for a non profit charity called Girls With Wiings, they distribute sanitary products for homeless and underprivileged women here in Cape Town. Research shows that the lack of access to feminine hygiene products is a big problem that effects poor, vulnerable women and girls in South Africa. They can't afford the proper sanitary products so they are forced to turn to alternative options that are mostly unhygienic and pose serious health risks.


The Girls With Wiings is a great initiative and it was so much fun getting up on stage and doing a 30 minute bodyweight cardio/lower body workout. Every ticket to the event buys a sanitary bad full of necessary products for one underprivileged women. 

The event had some amazing sponsors like Under Armour ZA, Loreal, Adventure Boot Camp, USN & FITNESS Magazine. Congratulations to Koinonia Baloyi who is the founder of the charity for running an amazing event. I am excited for the next one already.

Here are some pictures from the day.
