Calling all runners! If you’re up for a challenge and want to contribute to our work in the UK and Africa, why not run the Brighton Marathon in spring 2018?
International Tree Foundation (formerly Men of the Trees) is a small charity based in Oxford, UK. ITF plants trees, protects and regenerates forests, combats desertification and promotes sustainable forestry. We:
- Conserve forests, trees, associated biodiversity and indigenous forestry knowledge internationally and in the UK
- Alleviate poverty through sustainable community forestry and African drylands ‘regreening’ projects
ITF’s projects involve planting trees that provide food and income as well as improved soil and water quality for communities; our sustainable approach to community forestry simultaneously addresses poverty and environmental issues such as habitat restoration.
In the UK we focus on tree planting where there is an environmental need, and working with young people who can benefit from working with trees, often in partnership with schools.
International Tree Foundation have charity places for the Brighton Marathon, a beautiful seaside race taking place on Sunday 15th April 2018. We’re offering discounted places at £50, and in exchange we ask you to aim to raise £500 through sponsorship. Don’t worry, we’ll be here to put the fun into fundraising! You’ll receive a Supporters’ pack full of helpful tips, as well as a branded ITF running T-shirt, when you sign up.
We’ll also be on hand to take photos and cheer you on in April! Up for the challenge? Get in touch today to secure your place! You can contact our Fundraising team on 01865 318 832 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Registration closes 2nd March – so don’t delay!
