This wonderful event was initiated in 2014 and became Cosmo’s annual event where Cosmo would like to give back to the community, what is sometimes so easily taken for granted. Cosmo aims at developing a collective vision for the future, building partnerships with the private sector, civil society and government with a goal to create a sustainable future.

The Cosmo Team is proud to say that they partnered with Groot FM  in 2015  and each year we are raising more money for the #HOOPstoot project.

Participants will have the option to run or walk two different distances:
1. 5km inside the Pretoria National Botanical Garden
2. 10km from Pretoria National Botanical Garden towards the Pretoria street gate.

At the garden there will be entertainment for young and old, our suppliers will exhibit products available at Cosmo, giving out corporate gifts, brochures of special offers and latest releases or specials.
