CPUT’s phenomenal women came out in their numbers to celebrate Women’s Day with a 2.5 km fun run/walk on the Bellville campus. 

The pouring rain couldn’t stop the approximately 300 women from across the institution’s campuses from completing the event. Prof Penelope Engel-Hills, Acting Dean of the Faculty of Health and Wellness Sciences, officially started the event and two-times Comrades finisher and CPUT civil engineering lecturer Morakane Khahledi ran the race as a pacesetter. 

Lusani Vhangani from Food Science and Technology crossed the finish line first.

The race was followed by a Zumba demonstration at the Major Sports Hall where a lucky draw also took place.

A warm lunch and a special gift bag rounded off a spectacular event
