You've reached a secure online platform dedicated to fundraising for More Community Trust South Africa.

REGISTER FOR OR SUPPORT THE EXTRA MILE RUN

Huntington Village - on the fringe of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, and part of the greater Bushbuckridge area - represents the largest concentration of poverty in South Africa. 70% of the community of 6000 people is not economically active; its most vulnerable being women and children.

The Extra Mile Trail Run was conceptualised to raise funds in support of this community. In its second year, and now sponsored by Investec Rhino Lifeline, runners and walkers (both professional and amateur) are invited to participate.

Saturday the 21st September, 2019 will see athletes, families and community members running together for a greater cause. Spend an enjoyable day with good food and in good company in one of South Africa’s most beautiful places.

Don’t delay… There are only 1,000 spots available, so register now!

If you do not wish to run or walk, you may prefer to get involved by sponsoring a community runner, or making your own donation - every single cent matters.

To close off the day, we’ll also be holding a dinner at the Protea Hotel, Kruger Gate, where incredible items and experiences will be auctioned.

MAKE A GENERAL DONATION

Over the years, More Community Trust (MCT) has built close relationships with our local communities, and guests are invited to visit. This gives them the opportunity to experience a different – and humbling – way of living; visit culturally- and historically- significant sites; and connect with local people, while positively impacting their lives with the funds raised from these tours.

Guests of Lion Sands Game Reserve travel to the local village of Huntington to visit MCT’s projects there, including pre- and primary schools. Here, guests get to engage with the children, and learn about rural life and its everyday challenges.
