Distance For Difference (D4D), is a registered non-profit organisation which, over the last fifteen years, made a significant contribution towards the wellbeing of children, be it through children’s charities or individual children in need. We use sport to generate funds for distribution to various organisations involved in caring for children.
Firstly, we raise funds through individual athletes who find sponsors for every km they run, cycle or swim during a year through training or participating in specific events, e.g. the Comrades Marathon, the Absa Cape Epic, IRONMAN and the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Secondly, we host two fundraising events – the bi-annual Gratitude Run and THE500.
Over the past fifteen years, we’ve raised and distributed more than R7 million.
