Go Beyond for a Child

Go Beyond for a Child

Personal message

My name is Nontuthuko Mgabhi, I am commonly known as Nontu. I am a 32-year-old long-distance runner.

To respond to the health and educational challenges faced by 657 children in South Africa, Mtubatuba area (KwaZulu Natal), I have decided to run 7 Marathons in 7 Continents in 7 consecutive Days to raise funds for the needy and vulnerable children of a rural village school, Khiphinkunzi Primary School. The children are between the age of 5 and 15.

The school faces enormous challenges, i.e., overcrowding, n each class there us over 100 learners. I am raising funds to build 5 classrooms, 2 administration offices and revamp the school.

Over and above what I have mentioned, I will become the first African female to do the World Marathon Challenge (7 Marathons in 7 Continents in 7 in Days).

I kindly invite you to support this cause. Let's change lives for a lifetime. Your donation will bring about the change we all seek. No help is too little!

To learn more about the project, please visit the website: http://gobeyondforachild.com

Please also check out a short video below to meet me and the children/the school I will be supporting through the 2020 World Marathon Challenge. This video was done in September 2018 when I ran a nonstop 100 miler race to support children at this school.

The password to the video is: Nontu

Thank you and kind regards.

The inspiration for this campaign is to give back. I too was subjected to the similar learning conditions when I was growing up. It is through help I received from people and scholarships that I was able to attain education.

It is my turn to give back!

A total of 657 Children of the rural village school, Khiphinkunzi Primary School will have access to quality education in a conducive environment for learning and development.

*All donations will be made into the Trust Account by BackaBuddy which will be administered by Koppers Inc Attorney*
