Love To Live Awards Evening 2008




Love, Love & more Love! That was the overwhelming spirit of another very successful Love to Live campaign that was held from the 16th to 18th May 2008 at the Protea Sports Centre. The response from the public was unbelievable. Thirty five local schools enthusiastically embraced the event by participating in various talent contests, in which a strong message on suicide prevention, HIV/Aids and drug awareness was sent out to the community. The Glamorous Gran & interschool Sari Contest was a huge success.

The campaign recorded the highest number of entries in all categories. Over 4000 submissions each were received for the essay and poster competitions. The Crerars donation of R10,000 was awarded to schools that demonstrated dedication, support & commitment in various categories. Sobantu Secondary School entered for the second time and scooped several awards including 1st position in the Sketch contest. Some 7000 entrants participated in the fun run on Sunday, 18th May, making this race one of the biggest fun runs in the city. Proceeds from the fun run reached an unbelievable R320,000. Schools were presented with up to 90% of funds raised at the Love to Live Awards Evening which was held on 18th June 2008 at the Eddels Sports Club. 

All principals and educators of participating schools must be complimented for encouraging active participation from pupils and staff. Without the support of school children and the public at large the campaign would not have been a success and we thank them heartily for this. 

Be a winner & reach the stars. It’s easy – Love, Love & more Love!
