I believe that if we demand justice for ourselves we must also fight for justice for others; so I am using my Two Oceans half marathon to raise awareness about the crime of human trafficking and to raise funds for the A21 campaign who rescue the victim and restore the survivor.
The A21 Campaign exists to abolish injustice in the 21st Century through a comprehensive system of preventative measures, victim protection, prosecution of violaters and strategic partnerships. We believe that everyone can make a difference in the fight against injustice. The A21 Campaign South Africa is a field office of passionate individuals that are dedicated to putting a stop to human trafficking in South Africa and beyond. Our mission is to assist victims and bring local awareness to the epidemic.
The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, the 'world's most beautiful marathon' offers a challenging ultra marathon, a popular half marathon, a trail run and fun runs that the whole family can enjoy. The race will take place on the 15th of April 2017. The marathon offers a tough challenge against the backdrop of spectacular scenery and has become a national institution and a firm favourite with local, upcountry, and international athletes.
