Running the Rift Marathon exists to raise funds for the Kyaninga Child Development Centre


All the profit from Running the Rift goes straight to the KCDC, if you'd like to help more you can also fundraise through Just Giving. As a thank you for your support, we'll deduct 5% from the cost of your trip if you raise $500, and 10% for $1000 raised. See details here. Not in conjunction with any other offers.

The KCDC provides support for children with disabilities and their families in and around Fort Portal.

Founded in 2015 the KCDC now has a team of 12 specialist therapists and has treated almost 900 children (as of Nov 2017). They provide a vital service, one that just doesn't exist otherwise and the #RiftMaz plays an important role in raising funds and awareness.


Charity Marathon, Uganda

Every year David Emong, silver medal Paralympian and gold medal Para World Champ, joins us for the event. The message he gives to the children and their families about disability not being an inability is so important for them to hear and see from somebody as well known and admired as David. 

Join the Fun

The KCDC is the heart and soul of the event and you'll get to meet and play with some of the kids on the afternoon of race day. Get ready for sack races, egg & spoon races, rugby, football, juggling, drums, racing David Emong and more. It always proves a massively popular part of the trip and means as much to our runners as it does to the kids and their families.
