The Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon is a six-stage, seven day, self-supporting race through the Kalahari Desert, South Africa, across 250km. The race starts on October 12th and finishes on October 18th. I am running to raise money for Humanity Direct. Humanity Direct works with several hospitals in countries including Uganda, Tanzania and Somaliland where many families can’t afford even basic medicine so being able to afford an operation is out of the question. Many delay seeking medical care until the condition worsens or get into debt they can never repay. I am raising money for the Humanity Direct Universal Fund, from which the charity allocates funds to medical care as needed. Thank you very much!
