Join HACT’s Comrades Team

Run for a reason greater than yourself… run for hope!

HACT's 2019 Comrades Marathon campaign is all about #DoingItForTheKids!

Join our team today and help us give hope and a brighter future to thousands of children and young people impacted by HIV/AIDS.

HACT is honoured to be an official charity of the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA). Through our partnership, every runner who tackles this iconic race also has the unique opportunity to bring about real change in the lives of local children and young people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

With infection rates as high as 40%, the Valley of 1000 Hills is currently one of the epicentres of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. In this high-burden area, HACT is working tirelessly to bring hope to local individuals and families whose lives have been ravaged by the disease…



The CMA’s Race4Charity campaign enables all Comrades runners to create a unique fundraising page via their online entry profile so that they can safely and easily raise funds for HACT through the support of their family, friends, work colleagues and employers.

All HACT’s 2019 Comrades runners will receive a goodie bag and T-shirt as well as the full support of our team on race day.

“The love and care the HACT Team provide to people in need is just incredible - visit their centre and see for yourself what inspiring work they are doing to help local people in the commnities situated directly along the Comrades route! I am honoured to once again be running for HACT in 2019 and encourage all other Comrades runners to do the same - you won't be sorry!” Dean Wight, Founder of Beloved Long Runs KZN, Comrades Marathon 2018 Top Fundraiser and HACT Comrades Ambassador

There are currently over 2 million AIDS orphans in South Africa and 2000 new HIV infections occur among young girls every week. HACT provides targeted care and support to orphaned and vulnerable children – those whose parents are ill, have lost their parents, are HIV positive, are at high risk of becoming infected as well as those struggling with adherence. 

All funds raised through HACT’s 2019 Comrades campaign will go directly to helping HACT give these orphaned and vulnerable children hope for a brighter future.


HACT is THE place to be on race day! Bring your family and friends and come join us for our Comrades Family Fun Day! Contact our team at for more details.
