We dare you to run or roll the entire 12.560 kilometers from Aachen (Cape Town’s Partner City) to Cape Town together with us, in 10 days from the 21.05.2021 to the 31.05.2021.
Kilometer by Kilometer
We will be using the app “adidas Running” to track your collected kilometers (you can download it here for Android and iOS). Immediately before the beginning of the challenge, we will send you the link to a group within the App. This group will add up the collective kilometers covered by all of the participants. Here you can check what we have achieved already and how many kilometers are still needed to achieve our goal.
Make Life possible
The aim of this challenge is to raise donations and awareness for the project “Ubomi”. Last year our event was a huge success, not only did we exceed our kilometer goal, but we were also able to secure the food supply for our children in the townships for the time being, thanks to numerous donations.
In four Ubomi houses we are now able to provide a place of refuge for a total of 130 children and young people. Ubomi is Xhosa and means “life”. We try to create a place for our children where they can receive warm and healthy food,
language classes, life skills training, and other services to help them
increase their chance for a better future.
Participants and donors wanted
We are looking for participants to collect kilometers with us. Every kilometer should be sponsored by a donor who, for example, backs it with one euro. If you don’t have the time to take part, we would greatly appreciate a once-off donation or a shout out of our project. You can find additional information about Ubomi or the challenge on Instagram and Facebook.
