Run. Read. Lead. Families and kids come participate in the launch of the One Heart for Kids literacy programme by joining the trail run at Blaauwklippen Estate on 15 May.
“Every race you run gets someone to learn how to read.”
The One Heart programme aims to equip children and youth through the provision of fun, interactive, tested curriculum, after school activities such as trail running, leadership development, and peer to peer learning. The programme also provides mentorship and coaching for at-risk youth (see our programmes page).
Developing kids in trail running
In South Africa trail running provides many opportunities for adults but rarely caters for kids. One Heart develops kids in trail running and instils a love for sport and the environment.
The One Heart purpose is to inspire every young person to believe that he or she can conquer any trail: to help them realise that it’s not about performance, but about enjoying the sport as well as owning a healthy body and a sound mind – mens sana in corpore sano.

In One Heart, we believe that all children can run, everyone is a winner and every child’s personal goals can be reached. We have seen that children can overcome personal obstacles in their lives by finishing a race. Furthermore, for every race they run, children get to learn how to read.
Proceeds from our trail running events go for internationally renowned, CAPS aligned, SA Department of Education endorsed Key Links curriculum for SA schools. One Heart children can discover for themselves the beauty and excitement of running, reading and leading.
Developing healthy habits starts at a young age. Let’s help children discover the joy of running and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle as early as possible!
