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 Nepal we have year on year honed our approach to supporting the right charities to tackle the biggest problems. We have blended two very different, small, powerful organisations that tackle Gender Equality from two very different angles to bring the intangible nature of The Global Goals to be relatable, understandable and real for our Impact Runners.

 

Childreach Nepal

Children should be #TaughtNotTrafficked. We love how this project uses sports as a tool for development and aims to provide not just technical skills, but support the holistic development of children through sports activities. The programme aims to reduce dropout rates in the schools, to prevent child from being trafficking, indulging in unsafe migration and any other form of child abuse children may face once they drop out of school. It also focuses on bringing equality among the community regardless of gender, race and economic background of the family.

What inspires the Impact team…

Sport has the power to change lives, it inspires to dream, it is emotive, it breaks down our barriers and allows us to meet with the children as they open up.

Burns Violence Survivors - Nepal

With 56k of burns cases a year and only 2 hospital ward dedicated, this is a powerful project that goes right to the heart of Nepali culture. Not only tackling the care, but the prevention - a huge challenge when faced with the task of tackling domestic abuse and the use of acid in such attacks. Since starting the Nepal Impact Marathon we have funded 15 life-saving surgeries for burns victims, and with your support we can really ramp that up this year. 

What inspires the Impact team…

This is not an issue that has easy solutions, it’s not a topic that most larger organisations can prioritise, but someone has to. We love the passion and compassion of this tiny team, with tiny overheads. We love how our funds have the tangible impact of genuinely saving lives, one at a time.
