Watch this a wonderful documentary about the seed that started the Grandmother to Grandmothers Campaign. The mini-documentary made by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation details the origins of the Wakefield Grandmas group.
In recent years the Gogos (Zulu word for Granny) have started playing soccer, netball and other sports, as a way to keep fit and healthy and to promote healthy living to their grandchildren and the broader community. In 2011 the first ever Gogo olympics took place, attracting widespread media coverage and community interest. 2014 was the biggest Gogolympics yet, with over 1,000 Gogo participants!
