In August, APC member SANGONeT started raising money to fund its projects in a most innovative way – executive director David Barnard will be running the Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon, also known as the the “big daddy of marathons” in South Africa running circles, from 17 to 23 October 2010. The week-long race covers approximately 250 km, split in six legs with daily distances ranging from 28 km to 76 km. The event takes place in the Kalahari Desert, with average daily temperatures reaching in excess of 40 °C and dropping to below 5 °C at night. You can show your support on SANGONeT’s Facebook page, or donate to SANGONeT online. Photo: Photo:http://www.extrememarathons.com/augrabies/
