Walk with a Purpose
GraySwan, the title sponsor of the GreyT Run, is a financial advisory and wealth management company that handsomely donates profits to the GraySwan Charitable Trust. The sole purpose of the Trust is to be a channel through which GraySwan and other donors (100% of third party donations are distributed) can generously give to make a difference in the lives in the less privileged.
The Trust launched an initiative in 2016 called “Walk with a Purpose”. The mission of the project is to walk with a purpose by participating in the global trend of launching awareness of one of life’s most basic necessities, namely a pair of shoes…
Excellent teamwork by schools, pupils, parents and corporates in the Western Cape (predominantly Somerset West) supported the vision of the GraySwan Charitable Trust to work together as a community to make a meaning full impact in the lives others. Since the launch of the project almost 6,000 pairs of shoes have been distributed and R250,000 ploughed back into less privileged communities in the Western Cape.

The GreyT Run is an ambassador of “Walk with a Purpose” where all participants can run (not walk!) with a purpose. Helen Keller said “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much” which is so true. We would like to encourage you to donate a new or gently worn pair of shoes on the 17th or 18th of March. You may drop the shoes in a wheelie bin that will be clearly marked “Walk with a Purpose” on race days. The shoes will be distributed to the Greyton and Genadendal communities.
The GreyT Run offers you the opportunity to test your endurance, have fun and do good all at the same time!
Please come with shoes and go home without them…
