TEAM 25:40
Help become part of the solution by running for 25:40. Whether you are a novice or an elite athlete, 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, disease and violence, and help become a part of the solution.
