Why run a Caritas Ks event

Every day, thousands of women and children around the world need to cover many kilometres each day to fetch water, obtain food, get to school or market, or simply to survive.

Caritas Ks is an opportunity to fundraise and educate people at your school, workplace or community in social justice, with the aim of inspiring them to "be more" and "be a voice" for the poorest in our world.

New from 2015: Use our new marker posters to teach your runners, walkers, or bikers about what covering kilometres means in different parts of the world.

The great thing about Caritas Ks is that you can complete your kilometres for compassion any way you like. From canoe race on the local lake, to a marathon on an exercise bike, or a walk for water around your school grounds - the options are endless.
