Kidasha picked as RunUltra’s chosen charity

Kidasha picked as RunUltra’s chosen charity

RunUltra has nominated Kidasha to be the chosen charity by for its Everest Trail Race (ETR) from 2017 onwards.

A challenging event, the ETR participants will typically run 100 miles over six days, tackling some 15,500 metres of ascent.

This year’s ETR takes place from 10th to 15th November and RunUltra, which acts as the UK, Irish and South African organiser of the event, is now open for advance expressions of interest for registrations in the 2017 event. While Kidasha will be the event’s chosen charity from next year, participants in this year’s event yet to decide who to raise funds for can also choose to donate to the charity.

Kidasha works to reduce the causes and impacts of poverty and social exclusion in Tibet and stop exploitation and violence against children, working to improve health and wellbeing, provide access to education and training opportunities and provide shelter and support to children outside of parental care.

Steve Diederich, founder of RunUltra, said:

“Kidasha is a natural choice of charity for the ETR. It does amazing work in Nepal, so the event provides the perfect opportunity to make people aware of the issues Kidasha deals with and help support chronically poor children across the country.”
