Donate to Race! A Unique Opportunity with XNRG's Humanity Direct Tring Ultra
Donate £48 or pledge to raise as much as you can instead of paying to enter an ultra marathon - saving & changing the lives of children in developing countries who desperately need surgery.
The XNRG Tring Ultra is a unique chance to get a place on an amazing one day ultra for FREE if you fundraise for a Humanity Direct patient, or donate £48.
After a successful Humanity Direct Ultra in 2016, XNRG are partnering with the charity funding vital operations for little children again on 23rd September 2017.
So How does it Work?
It's simple. Instead of charging an entry fee for the one day ultra marathon, XNRG ask you to donate £48 pounds to fund a vital operation, or if you prefer, you can start a fundraising page instead - and raise the amount that you feel you can.
Places for this event go fast! We give people a special opportunity to enter to run or walk 31 stunning miles of Chiltern Hills for FREE if you sign up to raise some money for patients. Alternatively, donate £48 to register – all the money will go to an operation to save or vitally improve a little child’s life, and you will have the opportunity to challenge yourself to do something amazing in 2017.
2016’s Humanity Direct Ultra raised £8000 and helped fund life saving & life changing operation’s for 34 children and we’re hoping to raise even more in 2017.
100% of donations go to children’s operations in Africa with Humanity Direct
“October 2016’s HD & XNRG Ultra was a great success, funding operations including skin grafts and neurosurgery for children in Somaliland and Uganda. Without surgery, birth defects go unrepaired, treatable injuries result in lifelong disabilities and children die of easily correctable surgical problems such as incarcerated hernias. Your support means this doesn’t happen.” Nick Swift, Humanity Direct’s Founder
