We aim for all our Impact Runners to smash through at least £1000 of fundraising - this is what brings the Impact Week alive and leaves a lasting legacy in the communities we seek to serve…

The Impact Marathon Foundation has the goal of catalyzing change and supporting tangible, grassroots organisations with our funds, affirmation and a platform to tell their story

In Guatemala we work with 2 small organisations who are combatting the inequality that runs through the country. From supporting ostracised indigenous communities, to the challenge of inspiring a new generation to be young leaders, we will be workign directly with these teams to catalyse real, sustainable change in Guatemala.

 
 

SERES - Guatemala

The power of SERES lies in the vision for long term, systemic change through empowering the youth to lead. Great leaders inspire real change, they catalyse development and unite communities. We can’t tackle Climate Change without the leaders who will make the hard decisions and stand up for our plannet. SERES works across a diverse group of young, future leaders. They work across all indigenous groups, they work across gender, they work with those who have something inside them that burns to be a leader, that burns to create change.

What inspires the Impact team…

It is not easy, it is not a programme that will show you tangible results tomorrow - but it will be truly powerful and inspiring to see the youth of today blossom into the leaders of tomorrow.

 

Caras Alegres

One of our smallest organisations, that is nothing short of inspiration in their persistence whilst up against a seemingly impossible task. The team works in a small community right next to a prison…the only reason there is a community here is so that the families could be close to the mean residing inside the prison walls.

After school, the children have no one at home to look after them, help with their homework, feed them. So this after school group provides a powerful support network that ensures the children and youth of the community are safe, off the streets and developing their skill sets. In turn they are eating nutritious food and grow up to be less vulnerable to the gangs that hold so much sway in the communities.

What inspires the Impact team…

A small change, with huge, exponential Impact. An after school group is something we all understand and can relate to - but the ongoing impact of keeping children learning, well fed, with friends and in a safe environment is truly life-changing and impactful.
