The Bali Hope Ultra 2023

We're running for the children of Bali and in honour of a lost friend Jase

Dear friends and supporters,

On the 27th of May 2023 we will embark on a gruelling overnight coast-to-coast run across the island of Bali. In the heat and high humidity we will have to first climb a volcano and then gradually descend to the finish line over a demanding course of 84km.

This will be a challenging feat, but it is nothing compared to the obstacles that Balinese children face every day. By taking on this challenge, we hope to raise awareness and funds to help support the award-winning Bali Children Foundation in their mission to provide education and support to underprivileged children in Bali.

Education is a powerful tool that can transform the lives of individuals and communities. However, for many children in Bali, access to education is not always guaranteed. The Bali Children Foundation works tirelessly to provide education to these children, giving them the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and create a brighter future for themselves and their families.

We are asking for your support in this effort. Every donation, no matter how small, can make a huge difference in the lives of these children. Your contribution will help to provide them with the tools they need to succeed, including access to education, food, and other basic needs. 

We can't stress enough the huge impact our money can make - we don't think twice about spending $100 on a dinner out with friends, yet the same amount provides food support and essential vitamins for a malnourished child for 3 months. $220 puts an elementary school child through a scholarship for one year! ONE WHOLE YEAR.

Many of us who have been lucky enough to be holidaying in Bali surely don't realise that just outside the beautiful resort where we're sipping cocktails by the pool the everyday reality is very different.

Next time you're buying that beautiful bottle of wine or (...insert your own indulgence here...) think of the difference you can make and donate on our page.

On behalf of the children of Bali, thank you for your support!

( A year ago, we lost our dear friend and an amazing ultra runner Jase. A wonderful, caring human, Jase was also a dedicated supporter of the Foundation. We are running and fundraising in his honour.)

Thank you to our Sponsors
