My name is Taryn Copeman, I have never run the Two Oceans and entered for the first time this year (2018 half marathon). My ballot entry was unsuccessful so I have decided to sign up for a charity entry - which makes the race even more special and important! I was doing the race for me but now I am not only doing it for me but also for a greater cause.
Greenpop is an award-winning non-profit organisation. They envisage a world where green spaces and green living are POPular and accessible to everyone. They are on a mission to plant trees, green communities and empower environmental stewards across southern Africa.
Greenpop works on urban greening, reforestation and environmental stewardship. They were founded in 2010 and have since planted over 80 000 trees and inspired over 132 000 budding eco-heros at schools and other urban sites as well as forests and farms across South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania.
Through their work, they combat climate change, restart water cycles, turn urban deserts into regenerative landscapes that can provide nutrition, employment, education and economic opportunity.
