Upcoming Heart for Africa events
Join or support the Heart for Africa team at one of our events!
On Saturday 25th May, Heart for Africa is joining another local charity, PONT which works in Mbale, Uganda, at Pontypridd parkrun in Ynysangharad Park! Parkrun is going with an African animal fancy dress theme for the day and we'd love to see loads of our supporters there (running, walking, or just cheering others on!) - bring out those leopard prints, zebra stripes or full lion king outfit!
Parkrun starts at 9am prompt so please be there by 0845 if you're going to run/walk the course (5km, just over 3 miles). If you're going to walk/run and haven't done parkrun before, please register beforehand at https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/form/ (it's free!), print out your barcode and bring it with you.
We'll also have some delicious cakes so you can refuel after your efforts!
AND A SLIGHTLY LONGER RUN ....
From 29th May till 1st/2nd June, our trustee Fiona Davies will be taking on 'Cake or Death' - a new Ultra-running event of 271 miles on the Wales Coast Path, starting at St David's and finishing in Caernarfon! It's the longest run of her life and she's being sponsored for Heart for Africa - please go to https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/fionadavies2019 to find out more and/or to sponsor her (thank you!). Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and details of how you can track Fiona's progress - and if you live anywhere near the route, come out and give her a cheer!
Previous Heart For Africa Events
2019 All-Star Trip: February - March 2019
The February 2019 trip was awesome! A total of 20 young people spent 10 days in Tanzania, visiting schools, orphanages and the Mateves community whom we're helping to build a community centre - as well as having a safari day in Ngorongoro and visiting a snake park! Thank you to Steve, Mary and the rest of the team in Arusha for looking after them so well! Photos will be in the gallery very soon!!
BF Kilimanjaro Expedition 2018
A 5-woman team headed out to Tanzania in October 2018; 4 reached the top of Kilimanjaro, the world's highest freestanding mountain. After the climb, the team gave gifts to three of the orphanages supported by Heart for Africa, as well as visiting the CHISWEA street children's centre to see their new minibus, purchase of which was made possible through a grant from the Cardiff charity Heb Ffin.
