Fun Runs 2017

Sponsored runs are a fantastic way of raising funds for Living Water Africa. They are fun, and a great way for keeping fit too. Supporters have been running for us for a few years now, and we’d love it if you could help us in this way.

We’ve provided a selection of runs that are taking place all around the country in 2017. So, wherever you live, or whatever your preferred distance, there will be an event for you. Simply choose your nearest event, sign up via the link, and join Team Living Water Africa today.

Do let us know if you decide to run for us. We’ll then be able to:

1.  Reimburse you, when you raise more than the entrance fee

2. Send you your amazing free Living Water Africa running T-shirt and cool wristband

3. Advertise your online sponsorship page in our newsletter, on our website, and on facebook to help you increase your sponsorship
