How will TOM beneficiaries be selected for TOM 2020?
After the 2020 event, TOMI will invite charitable organisations to apply for funding to implement a proposed project aligned to one of TOMI’s pillars of education, environmental sustainability, health and wellness, and athletics development.
In a move to support more charities, runners are now able to donate directly to the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative, as the charitable entity of TOM, and select the impact pillar they would ideally like to see supported. These individual donations can be made on entering the 2020 event.
Details of the application process, as well as the required supporting documentation, are available here.
Beneficiary applicants will be shortlisted by the TOM NPC TOMI Committee, after which the TOM board will select the final projects that will receive support funding.
More than R269 000 donated for the four beneficiaries selected in 2019
In 2019, the Two Oceans Marathon donated over R269 000 to four selected beneficiaries for the growth of their programmes aligned to TOMI’s pillars of education, environment, health and athletics development.
