Teams of 2+ participants from any company can enter and walk, jog or run 5km, 10km, half or full marathons or even be a race day volunteer. Teams compete against each other to raise the highest funds for Street Child and the team should be endorsed and supported by their company brand.

How will my company benefit?

CSR - We can provide a breakdown of where your team's fundraising has gone and what difference it has made along with images and case studies. This is an amazing documentation for your companies social responsibility portfolio. 

Brand awareness and association: your company will have their logo around Sierra Leone and throughout the course. We will provide a set of professional images taken from the event for their marketing materials and website.
