Run For A Roof

Run For A Roof

On the 13th of June, I, Graham Wells will be running the virtual comrades marathon barefoot to raise funds for "Run For A Roof”, which is an initiative run by One Life Foundation.

My virtual comrades journey will start at 5:30am, 5km North of the Mooi River and i'll run 90km to the finish at the Town Hall in Pietermaritzburg. 

Homelessness is a pandemic all over the world which affects so many people. It is a pandemic One Life Foundation is trying to solve through building a homeless shelter in Pietermaritzburg.

Having worked in social housing in the United Kingdom, homelessness is something that is very close to my heart, and I also appreciate that there is a significant need for provision in Pietermaritzburg. 

Whilst out training in the morning; freezing cold, I am always struck by the number of homeless in our city. As we complain about the weather getting colder, imagine what it must get like living on the street, in a park or on a field. These are normal people, like you and I, and for whatever reason, have found themselves in a difficult situation and, consequently, homeless.

We have an opportunity to make a change. 

Combining efforts with One Life Foundation, we have a real opportunity to make a difference to the homeless in our city. One Life Foundation already does amazing work through various projects, and I truly believe with our input and their drive and determination, we can really change the face of homelessness for years to come.  

I'm a firm believer that running medals don't mean anything unless you have made a difference for someone else. 

I would love for you to partner with us and support me, as I run the virtual the comrades marathon, to help raise awareness and funds for this initiative. 

Many thanks and God bless.
