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 AIDS IMPACT

CURRENT PROJECTS
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, lack of resources and lack of attention from the outside world.
