Distance For Difference



Distance For Difference (D4D), is a registered non-profit organisation which, since 2005, made a significant impact in the wellbeing of children in South Africa. D4D use sport to generate funds for distribution to various children's charities. This is done through individual athletes who find sponsors for every km they run, cycle or swim during a year, while training or participating in specific events, e.g. the Comrades Marathon, the Absa Cape Epic, IRONMAN, The Cape Town Cycle Tour, etc. Secondly, D4D hosts two fundraising events – alternating every year between the GRATITUDE Run and THE500-24Hr-Cycling-and-Spinning-Challenge. We also launched the SWIM 4 HOPE brand in 2023. Over the past nineteen years, D4D raised and distributed more than R12 million. Some of our beneficiaries include Patch Helderberg, Kingdom Kids, Little Angels, Sylvia's House, Tzadokah Foster Home, Esther van Zyl, Gabriella Centre, Heartlands Baby Sanctuary, Kin Culture, just to name a few.

"Such creative ways to inspire people to participate! While it's a huge pity the actual event was unable to take place, I appreciated being able to "participate" from as far away as New York and contribute."
