My approach has always been to make all my miles and moments count, and this is just one way of doing it: by running and thereby also supporting a charity. The drive behind this charity is for athletes to choose a race they want to Run for Bibles, this can be any distance - marathon, half-marathon or even a fun run or Park Run, and get people to sponsor them for every kilometer run. This means we do the running, but also rely on others to support us as runners, which in turn will support our Run for Bibles charity.Whilst this may all be good and well, I have, however, given the concept much thought and came up with an alternative which will challenge me even more. The idea is that I will do it first, and then challenge other runners or walkers to do the same.I thus present to you my concept of “Run for Bible Rands”My pledge:“As from, Monday, 06 July 2015, I pledge to donate R1 (one Rand) to the Run for Bibles charity for every kilometer I complete in official races, every month, for one full year.” ( renewed for 2017 )This way I get to support my own charity in two ways: by creating awareness for this worthy cause and then to also contribute financially to my chosen charity.I will utilize social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram & Twitter to drive this initiative and I also wish to create an opportunity for fellow runners to join in and also make “The Pledge”. This way we can all support the Bible Society of South Africa to also reach their objectives, which is to distribute Bibles in many native tongues throughout South Africa.Do you also want to join me in support of The Bible Society of South Africa – and Run for Bibles ?Here is how you can also join hands and support this awesome charity.•Complete the ONLINE FORM which will capture your personal details ( it will then be submitted to me )•I will then get you registered and give you your donor number ( this I get from the Bible Society of SA )•Then start running and keep proper log of all your official races.•At the end of the month, add up all your kilometers in official races and convert that to rands ( example : 50km = R50 ) •Pay that amount to the Bible Society ( EFT ) and send only proof of payment to the Bible Society and CC me with the same email so I can use the info to update the totals on the web page, showing the total amount we’ve donated for this cause.•EXTRA : You can also get your friends or family to match your amount, once off or monthly, that is entirely up to you.This is the banking details of the Bible Society of South AfricaAccount Holder: Bible Society of South AfricaBank: ABSAAccount number: 260 220 748Branch Code: 632005Reference: Your NameplusRun4BibleRands ( It is important to make sure you add your reference when making a deposit )CONTACT ME for more information of if you have any queries.
