Currently, the process of inviting beneficiaries apply post the TTOM 2023 event is now underway. Go here for details.
How will TOM beneficiaries be selected for TTOM 2024?
After each event, TOMI invites 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 able to donate directly to the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative, as the charitable entity of the TOM NPC, and select the impact pillar they would ideally like to see supported. These individual donations were once again made upon entering the 2024 event.
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.
TTOM 2022 DONATIONS DISBURSED
Thanks to the generosity of Totalsports Two Oceans Marathon 2022 runners, R103 000 was raised by way of direct donations to TOMI. A further R319 000 was raised on GivenGain for specific charities, and these funds have already been paid to the runner-nominated charities concerned.
