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:
- Health and Wellness
- Athletics Development
As always, runners have the option of donating to TOMI when entering the TOM 2022 Event.
As a runner, you also have the option of buying a charity entry. These will become available once Entries for TOM 2022 have opened, and on the entry opening date for charity entries (TBC).
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 – links for TOM 2022 to be added in due course
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!
