Story

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit our donation page.

The GENIE'S WISH CHARITY is a children's charity whose mission is to enrich the lives of children and young people with SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITIONS. Imagine living with a brain tumor, cancer or a rare condition and facing the world!. These young stars miss the opportunity to explore the world; when time is not on their side, families wish to spend quality time with their loved ones  creating memories that no one can take away.

In April 2025, Global Running Adventures will host a marathon of 26.2 miles at the geographic North Pole. A field of 40 adventure athletes from around the globe will assemble for this event. It is our intention to participate in the race and raise money for this very worthwhile charity.

A challenge of this extreme nature and in this particular location ‘On Top of the World’ inevitably captures the attention of the local, regional and international media, not merely on the sporting pages but also in the general and life sections, in magazines, and on the radio, TV and Internet. Aside from the unique location, it is the only certified marathon distance that is run entirely 'on' water – the frozen water of the Arctic Ocean. What an amazing opportunity to display a company logo or name at the Top of the World, on the North Pole, in return for a charitable donation if so desired.

Myself and Edward see this very unusual and unique event as an unprecedented opportunity to promote your company name and product to a wide and captivated audience, and the opportunity to become a name synonymous with true grit and innovative sponsorship. Such benefits are tangible and quantifiable because they increase your visibility and promote sales. Furthermore, we shall be using our participation in the race to raise money for a very deserving charity and you can become positively associated with supporting this just cause.

All we ask is for a donation to a very deserving charity GENIE'S WISH

Change the life of one child, and you can change the world in time. A smile tells a thousand words and your donation WILL CHANGE a person's life and create a once in a lifetime opportunity. Everyone needs to be given a chance and these struggling children deserve a helping hand. Please please donate - you can change a life of someone less fortunate than you or I.

The Power of a Wish - THANK YOU 

With utmost regards
