I'm am excited and motivated to raise funds for Rape Crisis Centre, I have chosen this charity as I get tearful at the thought of what a human being must have gone through to have to turn to a Rape Crisis Centre. If my running can help raise funds toward equipping the angels that work there, to help rape victims, then I would be honoured. As an NPO they make a huge difference in our communities by supporting and empowering rape survivors after such traumatic experiences. Rape Crisis Centre also plays a vital role in strengthening the criminal justice system to further help protect us all against these heinous crimes. It would be my honour to run the Knysna Half Marathon in an effort to help raise funds for this cause.
Our mission is to promote safety in communities, to reduce the trauma experienced by rape survivors, to empower women, to promote gender equality, to strengthen the criminal justice system and to work actively to address flaws in legislation.
The Momentum Knysna Forest Marathon, known as one of South Africa’s most sought-after running events, offers exceptional highlights found in no other race anywhere in the world – particularly the scenery as most of the run takes place deep in the forest. Whether you compete in the half (21km) or the full (42km) marathon, runners can expect breath-taking views over the Knysna lagoon towards the Knysna Heads, the perfect inspiration towards the finish.
