Today, the Sage Foundation unveiled the $1,000,000 Challenge in partnership with parkrun at the Woodmead Country Club to raise money for the three local non-profit partners: SA Teen Entrepreneurs, SOS Children’s Villages and Dignity Dreams.
More than 350 Sage colleagues, customers and partners participated in a run/walk initiative raising funds. Sage Foundation asked each runner to raise money for one of the three charities, with a commitment to match any money they raised for their chosen charity, up to a maximum of R2 500 per person.
According to the Digital Solutions provider, this global fundraising challenge is going around the world with the Sage Summit Tour Series, to make sure Sage transforms more communities.
“It was great to bring our colleagues, business partners, customers and families together for a morning of exercise and fun for a good cause,” says Joanne van der Walt, Sage Foundation Manager, Africa at Sage. “The funds we have raised will support the three community non-profit partners who are doing some wonderful work and making a difference in communities.”
