Lace up for Scouts at the Comrades Marathon!

The 2024 edition of the Comrades Marathon is only 2 months away and one of the world’s most iconic races.

Are you participating in the Comrades?

As a dedicated supporter of SCOUTS SA and an advocate for community engagement, we are reaching out to you with an exciting opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of our Scouts. We are launching a GivenGain campaign to raise funds for SCOUTS SA in conjunction with the iconic Comrades Marathon, and we need your help to make it a success!

The Comrades Marathon embodies endurance, resilience, and the spirit of unity, values that resonate deeply with the principles of Scouting. This year, we aim to leverage the energy and enthusiasm surrounding this historic event to raise funds that will directly benefit our Scouts and their various programmes.

Here’s how you can get involved!

1. Create Your GivenGain Fundraiser:

By setting up your own fundraising page on GivenGain, you can rally your friends, family, and colleagues to support SCOUTS SA. Share your personal connection to Scouting and the Comrades Marathon, and inspire others to contribute to this worthy cause.

2. Spread the Word:

Utilize your social media platforms, email networks, and personal connections to spread awareness about our fundraising campaign. Share updates, stories, and photos that showcase the impact of SCOUTS SA’s programmes and the importance of supporting our Scouts.

3. Encourage Participation:

Encourage others to join the fundraising effort by creating their own GivenGain campaigns or making direct donations. Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a difference in empowering our Scouts to reach their full potential.

4. Celebrate Success:

As the campaign progresses, celebrate milestones, achievements, and the collective impact of our efforts. By coming together as a community, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our Scouts and support their journey towards personal growth and leadership development.

Our goal is not only to raise funds but also to foster a sense of camaraderie and solidarity within our community. Together, we can demonstrate the power of collective action and the transformative impact of supporting youth development through Scouting.
