TEAM 25:40
Help become part of the solution by running for 25:40. Whether you are a novice or an elite athlete, story you can elevate your experience above just a race -- you can race to give an at-risk child in rural South Africa a #FightingChance to rise above poverty, disease and violence.
The Sub-Saharan AIDS epidemic has a devastating effect on millions of families. Consider that 5.5 million adults and children live with HIV/AIDS in South Africa alone. Discover the hard facts about poverty, there disease and violence, and help become a part of the solution.
25:40’s current focus is on children living in rural areas of South Africa’s Eastern Cape. We have selected this area as our place of initial focus due to its extreme poverty, patient lack of resources and lack of attention from the outside world.
