Run For Good Charity Programme
This year we invite you to join hands with your fellow runners and set some serious fundraising records!
While all individual participants are encouraged to dedicate their run to a special cause in 2014, we’ve also dedicated the entire Ekiden category to charity. Each team of six to register must commit to raising a minimum of $500 (or roughly $83 per runner) in funds for their chosen charity. They must meet the fundraising target by 27 October in order to participate in the run.
All fundraising pages will be hosted on GIVE Asia, the event’s official fundraising platform.
Let’s come together and make a real difference in 2014!
Seeding Hope, Changing Lives
No one knows the power of sport better than a marathoner. The satisfaction earned, the lessons learned.
Now, you can help others change for the better by running for SportCares.
SportCares creates sports programming to improve the lives of children, families and communities in need. We link beneficiaries, passionate volunteers and community-spirited donors to bring out the best in everyone. We’re using sport for social inclusion, community bridging and personal empowerment.
How can you help?
With a $500 donation, SportCares can fund a gentle walking programme for the elderly for a year.
With $1,500, we can buy a sports wheelchair for a disabled athlete.
With $3,000, we can purchase a specially outfitted canoe for people with physical disabilities.
With $5,000, we can buy running shoes for 100 youths.
With $10,000, we can fund a youth football programme on Saturday Nights for a month, complete with coaches, a trainer, a meal, snacks, beverages and a bus home.
With $20,000, we can host a running programme for 20 youths for a year, with a great coach, a meal, drinks and a ride home – and, the kids can discover how good they can be, not simply in sport but in life.
Best of all, donating your time or money has never been simpler. Through the SportCares Foundation, you’ll even enjoy significant tax breaks.
