Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon charity beneficiary applications are now open

(Cape Town, 14 July 2015)  Charitable organisations wishing to apply to become official beneficiaries of the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, through the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI), may submit their applications by 13 August 2015.

TOMI was launched ahead of the Two Oceans Marathon in 2012. As an entity of the Two Oceans Marathon NPC, the body identifies beneficiaries that compliments the organisation’s support of education, environment, health and athletics development.

The call for applications and beneficiary selection takes place annually.

According to Lester Cameron, Chairman of the Two Oceans Marathon Association, hundreds of thousands of Rands are raised and divided among these beneficiaries every year.

“The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is much more than just a great day out for runners; we believe in supporting our society and our events provide a fantastic opportunity to give back to the community and those in need.

“Through generous runners’ donations, as well as funds raised through other Two Oceans Marathon projects we raised approximately R300 000 ahead of the 2015 OMTOM, providing a welcome boost to CANSA, Cape Kidney Association, Centre for Early Childhood Development, SANCCOB, SANParks and its Honorary Rangers, as well as Western Province Athletics."

Charitable organisations with projects that match TOMI’s support pillars and criteria should download the application form http://www.twooceansmarathon.org.za/information/tomi-beneficiary-application-process and submit their electronic applications by close of business on 13 August 2015.
