2022 Charities & Donations
OUR OFFICIAL CHARITIES
The Econet Victoria Falls Marathon invites you to make your run more meaningful by fundraising for charity!
Covid has been especially harsh on our charities in Victoria Falls that are normally totally reliant on tourism to support them. We appeal to our participants to make a donation where possible to one of our official Charities when registering, you can make a direct payment towards one of these charities while at the same time paying for your entry:
- The Greenline Africa Trust –Greenline Africa Trust, is a locally based organisation working with conservation and communities in and around Victoria Falls. This year your support will contribute to the Victoria Falls Recycling programme. As we have done each year our youth will also be cleaning up during the event, contributing to a Clean, Green, Sustainable City. Facebook page: Greenline Africa Trust.
- Clever Kapandura Family Trust – In a terrible tragic incident, Clever Kapandura of the Victoria Fals Anti-Poaching Unit was killed by an elephant on the outskirts of town. Clever was following up on a possible poaching lead when the elephant charged. The team with him split and unfortunately the elephant caught and killed Clever. Clever had devoted his life to wildlife conservation, and he joins the esteemed ranks of dedicated rangers fallen in the line of duty. It was our honour to have worked with him, and he will be sorely missed by all in Victoria Falls. We salute you!
