#Strideforgood pledges for an abuse-free society

9 December 2017 2:13 PM

Johnnie Walker and civic groups gathered at the Nelson Mandela Bridge to call for an end to abuse against women and children

South Africans have been encouraged to #striveforgood and to show support for an abuse-free society.

On Saturday, Johnnie Walker led the Stride for Good Iniative at the Nelson Mandela Bridge, where attendees pledged to eradicate the causes and effects of abuse against women and children for not only 16 days, but for all 365 days of the year.

Tshwaranang Legal Advocacy Centre (TLAC), Lifeline, Million Men March and People Opposing Women Abuse (Powa) partnered with Johnnie Walker in this initiative.

The Nelson Mandela Bridge was filled with 365 statues of Johnnie Walker Striding Men.

Johnnie Walker says that violence against women is often related to the irresponsible use of alcohol.

The company says that the Striding Men event is one of the many initiatives Johnnie Walker will champion to promote responsible drinking and combat alcohol misuse.

South Africans can pledge their support on www.strideforgood.co.za.
