One Heart for Kids
In South Africa trail running provides many opportunities for adults but rarely caters for kids. One Heart develops kids in trail running and instils a love for sport and for the environment. In today’s society children are introduced to running in a very competitive manner. If a learner is not the best in his or her school, he or she is often not motivated to participate. Our aim is to see our children and youth discover the joy of running at grassroots level.
Our purpose is to inspire every young person to believe that he or she can conquer any trial: to help them realise that it’s not about performance, but about enjoying the sport as well as owning a healthy body and a sound mind – mens sana in corpore sano. In One Heart, we believe that all children can run, everyone is a winner and every child’s personal goals can be reached. We have seen that children can overcome personal obstacles in their lives by finishing a race. Furthermore, for every race they run, children get to learn how to read.
Developing healthy habits starts at a young age. Let’s help children discover the joy of running and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle as early as possible!
