All donations will be evenly distributed amongst the charities.
Read more about the Charities and what they do and will be doing on race day at our CHARITIES WEBPAGE.

There will also be a few WALLY moisture management race T-shirts from previous years available at give-away prices (while stocks last).
Ideal for training in!
Also 40th anniversary memorabilia, such as Wally mugs and key rings and more.
KIDDIES ENTERTAINMENT SUPERVISED BY THE CHARITIES TO RAISE FUNDS FOR ONLY R30 PER CHILD OF 3 TO 10 YEARS OLD.
Parents will just need to purchase a plastic hospital identity bracelet for each child for only R30 for the entertainment of your kiddies between 05h30 and 11h30 on the morning of 2 May 2016.
Since the Kiddies 1 km will start at 09h00, you could participate in races 21km and shorter and still have time to collect your kiddies to take part in the 1km together with them, after finishing your own race.
You can pay for the Kiddies entertainment (and optionally, also their 1km entries), together with your own on-line race entry - or you can even only pay for the Kiddies entertainment, without having to enter any of the races - or you will also be able pay the same amount at the kiddies entertainment area on the sportsfield, on race day.
Masseurs will be available to massage your aching muscles after you finish your race for a donation of only R20 for 10 minutes of massaging.
You'll be able to pay for this at the gazebo of the charity of your choice, at the Charities area on the sportsfield, where you'll receive proof of payment to present to the group of masseurs who will be located together at the centre of the Charities area, providing their services for all of the charities.
ALL proceeds from massages will go to the 5 CHARITIES supported by the 2015 MiWay Wally Hayward Marathon.
Costs kindly covered by our 2016 apparel sponsors, ROCKETS.
RAINBOW RUN FOR CHARITIES
We will be having a RAINBOW RUN where you you will stand a chance to win spot prizes if you compete wearing something that is the colour of the charity that you would like to show support for, in any distance race.
You will be able to optionally also buy a RAINBOW BUFF (in the colours of all of the charities) for a donation of only R80 or RAINBOW SLEEVES for a donation of R200, from the WALLY SHOP on the Hoërskool Zwartkop main Rugby field (the finish area) on Sunday, 1 May 2016 - from 10h00 to 16h00 or on the morning of the race from 04h15 - but the very limited stock will probably run out quickly at the race venue.
Buff and Sleeves costs kindly substantially subsidised by our 2016 apparel sponsors, ROCKETS.
However, if you cannot afford either the RAINBOW BUFF or RAINBOW SLEEVES, you will be welcome to compete wearing any of your own clothing (hats, socks, gloves, buffs, shoes etc.), in the colour (or colours) of the charities that you'd like to show support for.
The charities are: PINK DRIVE (Breast cancer mobile screening and education in underprivileged communities throughout SA), SPCA (caring for abandoned, neglected and abused animals), AMADEA Place of Safety (caring for neglected and abused children), RAINBOWS AND SMILES (supporting children with Cancer and their families), KWAGGASRAND REDDINGSDAAD (accommodating and supporting homeless families and providing nutritious lunches for hundreds of hungry destitute school children).
The charities' colours are:
AMADEA - RED,
RAINBOWS AND SMILES - GREEN,
PINK DRIVE - PINK,
SPCA TSHWANE - BLUE,
KWAGGASPOORT REDDINGSDAAD - Black.
ALL proceeds will go to the 5 CHARITIES supported by the 2016 MiWay Wally Hayward Marathon.
