#running4pads consists of a team of individuals. The team offers various skills towards the campaign, from social media, organising events / collections to running. Our first campaign for the year is the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon.
We will also be at the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon later this year.
The team’s goal is to ensure that we can help as many girls as possible by restoring their dignity and keeping them in school. We also try and raise as much awareness about this social issue as possible and hope that we can make a difference by creating awareness.
We are collecting from all over the country actually and people can get involved by getting in touch with any one of our ambassadors through our Running4Pads social media pages.
