Support a Campaign

Our annual campaigns are primarily centred around events hosted by us, alongside our partners, where you are able to get involved in various ways. These are the campaigns we have become best known for and grow in their success each year.

World Hunger Day

To raise awareness for the fight against hunger, not only in South Africa but also globally, Rise Against Hunger Africa hosts various events on May 28 for World Hunger Day. As millions of people face hunger worldwide, we invite you to lend a hand in support of growing the movement to end hunger, one meal at a time. Here’s how you can join us:

Comrades Marathon

The Comrades Marathon is an ultramarathon of approximately 89 kilometers run annually in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa between Durban and Pietermaritzburg. It is the world’s largest and oldest ultramarathon race. We are proud to be a charity partner and urge you to choose Rise Against Hunger as your official charity. Every donation helps us create a brighter future. Here’s how you can support the race:

Nelson Mandela Day

On July 18, Nelson Mandela Day is a day to honor his legacy and inspire individuals to take action to change the world for the better by building a global movement for good. Each year, we offer many large-scale corporate and community events for Mandela Day, an opportunity to volunteer 67 minutes — in honor of his 67 years fighting for social justice — to package nutritious meals to support beneficiaries across South Africa. Here’s how you can join:

Chef Showdown

World Food Day, which falls on October 16, is an impactful opportunity to grow our global movement and generate action toward addressing food insecurity. Each year, we celebrate this day with our annual Chef Showdown, a culinary battle royale between talented chefs to create the dish that generates the most social media engagement and awareness for Rise Against Hunger’s mission. Here’s how you can join:
