The Hollard Joburg Urban Run Adventure is proud to support and be associated with these four incredible charities; the Wits Paediatric Fund, The Character Company, Rare Diseases South Africa and Campaigning for Cancer. With this in mind the Hollard JURA has integrated a donation option within the online entry portal, so entrants can nominate their selected charity for a  once-off or regular donation.

Mark Castel, Event Organiser, expands:” The Hollard JURA is all about overcoming obstacles what better charities to support than charities who are taking on some of the toughest challenges and issues that we face today. That’s why we’ve integrated a donation portal within the entry process, so that with a simple click riders can nominate a charity and make a real difference. So enter, run and do some good while you’re at it.”

Entrants nominate any of these four worthy causes. Supporting Rare Diseases South Africa to help create awareness about various life-threatening diseases affecting our children on a daily basis.
