Fundraising for Pass It On Africa
We rely heavily on runners fundraising to support our projects in Africa. Your entry fee covers all the event costs and annual running costs of the charity.
We are challenging every runner to collect £20 sponsorship before the big day in May.
If we can achieve this then together we would raise over £20,000 for Pass It On Africa! 100% of this will go straight to our projects, straight away.
