 The motivation of our trip is to run in the name of someone needing a recovery or in a special person’s honour. 

DL Link is now involved with over 780 families affected by Cancer.
We are here to reach out to families in need of respite & care.

By running the Jerusalem Marathon, we are identifying with our Warriors illnesses, giving them added strength and hope while raising much needed funds so that we can continue reaching out to them and their families. 

The DL Link would be grateful to you if you could raise a minimum amount of R 5400.00. 

Raising money may seem like a daunting task, however, we are here to assist you. You will be able to create a sponsor page on our website, making fundraising fun and very easy. A sponsor can pay directly to DL Link and allocate it to your name.
We will also be sending out fundraising tips along the way. We are here to guide you through your RUN and FUNdraising efforts!

  Should you need assistance to cover travel costs, please speak to us as there is a way through your fundraising efforts to cover some of your costs by raising R36 000 or more.

By raising R72 00.00, you will receive R18 000 towards your ticket and accommodation. 

By raising R180 000, you will be awarded with 2 return tickets and a double room at the hotel we’re staying at.

We will be honouring our sponsors at our ‘send-off’ event and will be wearing their logos internationally on our kits.

 Should you have a sponsor in mind, a DL Link representative will be happy to go to a meeting with you.
