Discovery’s sponsorship of the Spring Walk was brought to life in numerous ways which included a media campaign and on the day event activations.
The event campaign was built around the idea of “winter creatures” that are coming out of hibernation. The Spring Walk was the perfect event for “winter creatures” to walk away from their winter ways.
The “winter creatures” campaign was promoted on-air and through digital advertising on both Jacaranda FM and Discovery’s social media pages. These “winter creatures” were present at the race and they encouraged walkers throughout the event to be active and to walk away from their lazy winter ways.
