Impact Ambassador @lucy_bartholomew is counting down to @wser and she will be taking over our Insta tomorrow to give a little insight into her physical, mental and emotional preparations ahead of her first 100 mile race (crazy, we know!). Lucy's race is on Saturday 23rd and we want as many of our Impact Community to be right there with her in spirit. Chuck on you trainers, head out for a run and send a heap of positive energy to Lucy using #RunningWithLucy. We won’t be there on the course but we want to clock up enough miles to mean that there will always be one of us out running somewhere in the world matching her step for step sending all the support and love. Massive GOOD LUCK Lucy! We cannot wait to hear all about it in Nepal.
Sunday feels! Never under estimate the importance of rest and recovery..
On race day there is no better feeling than crossing the finish line after giving it 110% and there must be no better feeling than crossing the finish line after running the whole 26.2 miles with your mother. Side by side supporting, encouraging and helping each other from beginning to end, reminding each other why you are doing it. Amazing people doing incredible things, all with a goal of helping others. That is Impact. Thank you for inspiring us Belinda and Cam.
Good luck to anyone racing this weekend, enjoy it and don't forget to smile.. for you are awesome!
What a day!!! Malawi Impact Marathon 2019 launched this morning and the response has been incredible. We are so excited to have so many people starting their Impact Journey. Here's to the people, here's to the places, here's to the #POWEROFRUNNING
Malawi Impact Marathon 2019 launches TOMORROW and includes our most amazing launch offer to date! Get ready to experience the magic of Malawi...
Over 100 children came to participate in a local sports afternoon which involved frisbee, shot-put, discuss, long jump, relays and a lot of excitable cheering!⚾️ And no sports day is complete without a wheelbarrow race, of course..
Naturally Africa Foundation have designed a programme which (to date) has distributed solar lights and fuel efficient stoves to 1400 homes, benefitting approx 6500 people. There are numerous environmental, health and social benefits of this project, which include: 1) Significant reductions in deforestation. 2) Time/cost saving of collecting/purchasing firewood and/or fuel (charcoal, paraffin), batteries used for cooking and lighting. 3) Reduction in respiratory and eye health issues, due to the reduction in smoke. 4) Social and education benefit of light available in evenings and cost/time savings that can be used to cover other needs. We were lucky enough to be taken through the process of making a fuel efficient stove, (wonderfully demonstrated by Amber!) and take immense pleasure in knowing these stoves have been recently distributed to the homes in Sungo fishing village. 📸 @adamdickens

We spent the week in the heart of the Nkope community and within 24 hours had litter picked, installed the villages first ever bins and assisted in building a pre-school. The younger generations helped and watched on whilst firmly gripping our hands as we set up long-term structures for future families to make use of and continue building. #POWEROFRUNNING
Join us as we relive #MalawiImpact 2018 and allow us to share with you the natural beauty of this incredible Country and its welcoming inhabitants.. 📷 @adamdickens
The people and Country of Guatemala warmed our hearts when we lived and worked there at the beginning of the year and it is almost impossible for us to put into words the way we are feeling after the devastating news of Fuego’s eruption. We cannot control natural disasters but there is so much that we CAN do. Our commitment to Guatemala goes way beyond an Impact Week. We will continue to do everything we can to support, promote and empower the incredible people of Guatemala as they recover and rebuild now, and grow and develop in the future.
