Tutus for the Pink Phoenix Foundation “Tutus and Takkies” Beach Walk

The Pink Phoenix Foundation raises funds for cancer treatment and to increase cancer awareness. One of their annual fundraisers is a 5km walk or run on the Umhlanga beach front, where participants are encouraged to wear pink, particularly pink tutus. The club took orders for tutus from participants and sold more on the day before the event, donating all the funds raised to the Pink Phoenix Foundation. The tutus were so popular even Melvin the Lion’s tutu was sold before the walk began.
