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 every TTOM Ultra and Half Marathon event.
As a runner, you also have the option of buying a charity entry. These can be purchased directly from any of our official charity partners, who will be announced once TTOM 2023 has opened.
By the end of TTOM 2022, R103 000 was donated directly 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.
