How will TOM beneficiaries be selected for TOM 2022?
After the 2022 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 2022 event.
Details of the application process, as well as the required supporting documentation, will be made available in due course.
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 2021, the Two Oceans Marathon disbursed R217 565,30 to 14 charities. This was made possible through direct donations from runners during the course of 2020, despite the event having been cancelled! The 14 selected charities / elected beneficiaries submitted proposals for their programmes aligned to TOMI’s pillars of education, environment, health and athletics development. We are proud to be a small part of the phenomenal work these organisations do at grassroots level.
