Get Fit For A Good Cause

You’re invited to walk, run, cycle or blade, to help raise $100,000 for families in need.

Get fit and active with your family and friends, have fun, and raise money for children and families in need at the same time, at the SAFRA Wheels & Feet Charity Challenge, taking place for 50 days from 9 April to 28 May 2022.

All donations and proceeds from this event go to the beneficiaries of the President’s Challenge. And it’s just the start – the SAFRA Wheels & Feet Charity Challenge kicks off SAFRA Cares, an initiative to commemorate SAFRA’s 50th anniversary by raising funds for those in need, especially in these trying times.

SAFRA Wheels & Feet Charity Challenge: What’s involved?

The event will take place virtually so you can do your part, anytime, anywhere, outdoors or indoors. Participants can choose to run, walk, cycle or blade. About 2,000 participants are expected to sign up and the aim of the event is to clock 500,000km collectively.

The Challenge hopes to raise $100,000, made up of participants’ registration fees, donations from Individual Runner and Team sub-campaigns, and sponsor and corporate donations. The money raised will go towards helping the President’s Challenge’s benefitting agencies under their Children, Youth & Family Services category.

How to participate

All you have to do is choose your activity and distance and pay the relevant fee. You can also create your own sub-campaign amongst your network of family members, friends and colleagues, to raise more funds for the event. After you have completed your activity, submit your results manually or choose an automatic submission by auto-syncing your wearable fitness tracker with the Strava fitness tracker app. You’re also welcome to share your progress and achievement on social media and online social fitness spaces. Do remember to hashtag your posts with #SWFCC and #SAFRAWheelsNFeet.
