Zambia Fun Run 2024

June 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Zambia Fun Run – Friday 7th June 2024, 10.00-12.00pm

Zambia Fun Run is a fun way of getting all children from your school involved.  Pupils will run a fun run course based on their age group and take part in another 2-3 activities (KS1, Y3/4 Y5/6).  This event is organised by Team Durham (Durham University) as a fundraiser for their Sport in Action work in Zambia.

This year we will be making the Zambia Run more Zambia themed with different fun activities as well as the fun run. Activities will include Dance (very popular in Zambia) plus Football and Netball which are 2 of the development sports that Durham University students will be coaching this summer in Zambia.

The cost of the run will be £2 per child You may also choose to ask children to gain sponsorship for the fun run, to raise some extra money for this worthy cause.

About the Zambia Project

Sport in Action Zambia is a Non Governmental Organisation based in Lusaka in Zambia which aims to enrich the lives of young people through sport, physical activity and the promotion of social messages through sport.

Each year the Wallace Group which comprises of University of Stirling, Northumbria University, Loughborough University, University of Bath, Cardiff Metropolitan University, St Andrew’s University and Durham University send 5 students each to go out to Zambia to work in orphanages and compounds teaching netball, football and basketball. The students also assist with PE lessons in schools and after school clubs.

The money raised from the run will go towards purchasing sporting equipment for Sport in Action: Zambia, which will in turn be loaned out to schools and compounds to increase the quality and quantity of the sports sessions that can be run.
