TOMI Two Oceans Maratho‌n Initiative

TOMI Two Oceans Maratho‌n Initiative

The Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI) was launched ahead of the 2012 event, as the philanthropic arm of the Two Oceans Marathon NPC, to provide much-needed funding for charities that match Two Oceans’ four social impact pillars:

  • Education
  • Environment
  • Health and Wellness
  • Athletics Development

As always, runners have the option of donating to TOMI when entering the TOM 2021 Virtual Charity Challenge. The 2021 event is entirely charity focused. To enhance this, runners are requested to raise funds for any charity or cause of their choice as part of their #RunForChange pledge on GivenGain or BackaBuddy (below).

By the end of 2020, R217 565,30 had been donated to TOMI thanks to the generosity of Two Oceans Marathon runners. Charitable organisations were invited to apply for funding after the event and after a rigorous selection process, several community-based organisations doing social outreach work aligned to each pillar above, were chosen as beneficiaries who would receive funding.

Fundraise for any cause with GivenGain or BackaBuddy

In 2019, the Two Oceans Marathon, through the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI), became the first running event in South Africa to raise more than R1 million on the GivenGain platform. A total of R1 035 302,00 was raised, to be precise. Thank you to our TOMI runners, supporters and donors for your passion and generosity!
