This year the Heart 104.9FM Mommy and Me Walk in association with Toys R U, Canal Walk and People's Post raised a whopping R19 000 for the St Joseph's home and the Canal Walk foundation. Above and beyond, the moms collected a huge bag of toys for the needy. "I am proud to be associated with such an event that gives mom an opportunity to take time out of their busy schedules to give back to the community and have fun at the same time. I trust that this initiative will grow from strength to strength," says Saskia.

Sadia Fritz, a mom of two boys from Bonteheuwel walked away with first prize including a R500 Toys R Us gift card, a DSTV decoder and a R200 voucher from Hilton Medi-Spa to name but a few. "I am ecstatic about winning this great prize especially as I have never won anything before. I also love that both my boys and I will benefit from it. A big thank you to all involved," says Sadia.
Moms were spoiled with a time-out goodie bag when finishing the crossing line and kids were kept entertained with clowns and face-painting. Kids also got the opportunity to be photographed with CBeebees' Fimbles characters from DStv Channel 306.
