The Getfitnation group celebrated its first birthday on Sunday January 16.

Community members and 20 young people joined a gratitude walk at Westridge gardens to mark the occasion, said founder Colleen Cozett.

The group which took part in the gratitude walk consisted primarily of children aged 10-18 who are coordinated by Laeeka Hendricks from Lentegeur.

The aim of Getfitnation is to instil the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle by doing walks, runs, hikes, community events and to get Cape Town moving, she said.

The group has 1200 members on all social platforms. She thanked the community for their support.

GFN are joined in outdoor activities by members of Mits and the Mitchell’s Plain Walking Buddies.
