Purpose: Run Miles, Grow Smiles #Miles4Smiles

The miles run will help raise awareness and money, and create a running community with an increased knowledge of the challenges and needs in rural Africa.

Working in partnership to support entrepreneurial, local, rural communities to develop agricultural gardens aiming to improve income, health and nutrition.

With specific focus on helping start-up female co-operatives that benefit the heart of the family home; and community school garden projects that provide education and self-sustained school feeding programs to improve a child’s
concentration, health and overall well-being.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together!

– African Proverb

We need your help. We’ll achieve this working with the UK registered charity, United Purpose, local NGO’s and community organised co-operatives, all about supporting hard working teams to grow a bigger and brighter future.
