Africa Run

Africa Run is an international fundraiser which mobilises individual runners to raise money for a school in Southern Africa. Funds raised are then matched up to a certain amount by the pharmaceutical company Dr Willmar Schwabe.

In 2019 we were fortunate to be able to identify a school in the Eastern Cape – Ekuphumleni High School in Whittlesea – to be the recipient of this fundraiser. R1,7 million was raised altogether and now we are investing these funds at Ekuphumleni High into the infrastructure and teacher and student development. Updates can be found on our news page or by visiting the school's website: www.ekuphumleni-school.co.za .
