From Pass It On Africa to RISE

The HEROES RUN was started in 2005 in aid of the charity Pass It On Africa and the race went on for 13 brilliant years, helping to fund amazing projects in Africa. From 2018, RISE will be taking over the race from Pass It On Africa. Matt, co-founder of Pass It On Africa and HEROES RUN, explains the decision:

We first created HEROES RUN and Pass It On Africa in 2005. We never dreamed the event would become as large as it has and thus helped us support five school build / expansion projects in Kenya, Ghana, The Gambia and Uganda respectively. Our loyal superheroes have enabled us to support the primary education of 1,000's of children since we began. As a team of volunteers we now feel we have taken the charity as far as we can and having just completed our 5th project have decided to call it a day. However, we still wanted HEROES RUN to continue to do good. When looking for a charity to take on the race, we quickly chose RISE. Not only do they do fantastic work but have been very supportive to us over the years, freely sharing resources and experience.

I am delighted that HEROES RUN will continue long into the future and always help those in needs. With RISE, we know the race is in safe hands!
