We are still celebrating Women’s Month – so let’s get up and run for girls in need!
Our Member Amanda, also founder of Running4Pads and Leader Emily are inviting all our ladies to run for sanitary pads. The aim of this run is to collect donations of sanitary products for #Running4Pads. The donations will go directly to girls in need.

Remember Girls, together we can make a difference!
This will be an easy CMIYC group run to enjoy a beautiful morning with other like-minded women and have fun doing something good.
No water points. Please bring your own water. Litter free event!
About 2 million girls aged between 12 and 18 still cannot afford sanitary pads. This issue hinders learning amongst the youth in disadvantaged communities, and it also contributes towards absenteeism as well as drop-out rates. In addressing this learning barrier, SAAC has partnered with a team of runners under the #Running4Pads campaign – with the aim of securing and donating sanitary pads, tampons and toiletries. All the runners will also participate in the Cape Town Marathon, as a way of creating awareness around this social ill. This is not just a mere run–it is a run in the shoes of a needy girl child. Running4Pads consists of a team of 13 individuals. The team offers various skills towards the campaign, from social media, organising events / collections, running to cycling (please view our blog or social media pages to learn more about each individual team member).
