Wild Women began as the dream of two Eastern Cape women and rapidly became a reality in 2012. The plan was to create a nurturing environment for women to experience an affordable, physically challenging, empowering, multi-day trail running adventure in a place of astonishing natural beauty (the Wild Coast). It was never intended to be a race: rather it would be a collaborative, supportive, fun journey where close bonds were formed as women encouraged one another through tough times and honoured each other’s successes.
Now, a decade later we are celebrating ten years of #womensupportingwomen while also raising money for local charities. As a group of women deeply aware of our privilege, it was always our intention to give back to our communities. We chose African Angels Independent School www.sponsoranangel.org and Busfare Babies Birth Centre www.birthworks.co.za (both from the Eastern Cape) as recipients of our fundraising efforts. To date we have raised close to R1 Million. In 2021, our tenth year, we wish to:
honour the strength and tenacity of the 70+ warrior womandla who have shared this experience
- acknowledge our sister branches in other parts of South Africa and in China
- celebrate the joy, belly laughter, deep friendships and support systems that have been forged
- applaud the generosity of our supporters and sponsors who have given so freely to our charities
But that’s not all. We also want to harness our vast collective energy to reach R1 Million in sponsorship by 2021, our tenth year. Then we plan to #Match1Million with the help of a bold and visionary corporate sponsor (or sponsors) which resonates with the fabulous, wholehearted ethos that is Wild Women.
