Irafaan Abrahams, co-founder of Lace up for Change, has taken up his greatest challenge yet. Running 50 half marathons during 2021 with the aim of raising funds to provide school shoes for 50 schools across South Africa. If that isn’t amazing enough, the idea was born on his 50th birthday.


To support Irafaan on his ambitious fundraising journey this year, Lace up for Change has put together a virtual run series. We challenge all runners and walkers to Lace Up For Change and join us in building up 21 km in mileage every month.
