Weʼre raising £500 to Help Caring4Girls, a sanitary towels distribution programme helping keep South African girls in school during their monthly cycles.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
100 runners from all walks of life will be playing their part in keeping more South African girls in school. Many girls cannot afford sanitary towels to use during their monthly period meaning that for a few days in a month they cannot go to school and this results in them missing more than one month of school a year. I'm running the Isle of Coll 10k in August 2018 to raise funds which will be will be forwarded the the Caring4Girls project which is supported by the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Nelson Mandela’s would have turned 100 birthday this year.
