Testimonials from some of our franchise owners

Be your own boss | Earn an income | Have fun

Beth Hamman

Franchisee – Fourways 

I have been involved with Run/Walk For Life for over 18 years, the last nine as a franchisee. This best thing is, I get to live my passion and see what can be achieved with this programme on a daily basis. I love seeing people who never exercised before experience the satisfaction of doing their first 5 or 10-kilometer race. 

Lindi & Frohan Landman

It’s great to be part of such a fantastic team like Run/Walk For Life and to see real change and improvement in the lives of our members.
