Johannesburg - 365 Johnnie Walker Striding Men statues along with POWA, Million Men March, Tshwaranang Legal Advocacy Centre and Lifeline, strode in unity on Nelson Mandela Bridge, in support of an abuse-free society.

On Saturday from 9am to 12pm at the iconic Nelson Mandela Bridge, Johnnie Walker in partnership with Million Men March, Tshwaranang Legal Advocacy Centre and Lifeline held an event in support of an abuse-free society and pledged to do all they could to eradicate the causes and effects of the abuse of women and children for not only the officially-mandated 16 days, but for all 365 days of the year. 

The South African public was also invited to pledge their support to eradicate the causes and effects of abuse for all 365 days of the year by logging on to www.strideforgood.co.za to confirm their support.

Alcohol has long been associated in many parts of the world with enjoyment and celebration; at Johnnie Walker, their brands are made with pride, but also to be enjoyed – responsibly. 

Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Violence against women is often related to the irresponsible use of alcohol.

The Striding Men event was just one of the many initiatives Johnnie Walker will be championing to promote responsible drinking and combat alcohol misuse.

Johnnie Walker was proud to invite South Africa to participate and contribute towards 365 days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children by promoting responsible drinking in South Africa.
