Our Mission

The mission of 25:40 is to channel the attention and resources of those blessed with much toward saving children in southern Africa from the devastating impacts of poverty, disease and violence, and in doing so create one community of people empowered with purpose, healing and hope.

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.
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.
