Support education and an end to poverty – Royal Parks Half Marathon 2023

Have you entered the 2023 Royal Parks Half Marathon? This year, the 13.1 mile race is being held on Sunday 8th October 2023, taking place in London's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

This is the second year that Masicorp UK has entered a team into the race and we are looking forward to supporting our runners with all the tools they need to help raise funds for education in Masiphumelele, a township near Cape Town, South Africa.

About Masiphumelele and Masicorp

Poor education is a leading factor in continuing the cycle of poverty in Masiphumelele. It is estimated that 40 000 people are living poor and disadvantaged in this community due to the legacy of apartheid. The limited access to a quality education also leads to extremely high levels of unemployment – an estimated 70%!

Masicorp UK drives fundraising initiatives to support educational projects for children and adults living in Masiphumelele. We believe in education as a tool to empower people and uplift communities from poverty, and the work of Masicorp in South Africa over the past 23 years has seen thousands of people benefiting from various education and skills development programmes. Masicorp is making a proven difference to their lives, helping people progress out of poverty and towards a brighter future.
