We are training like rangers,


21st September 2024

Join our ranger team, on the 21st of September, wherever you are in the world and run, or walk, #ForWildlifeRangers! 

Team SAWC – Tebogo, Precious, Peace, Ernest and Clive are calling upon YOU to help us raise awareness and funds that will support rangers across Africa. 
Team SAWC has started training and preparing for race day where they will run 21km wearing backpacks weighing 22kgs for the men, and 10kgs for the ladies. We would like to invite you to spend the next two months training in support of our team, while raising awareness about the plight faced by rangers across Africa. Your support will help us raise funds for rangers whilst also supporting our operational teams at the College, including our ranger training team, our K9 unit and our airwing.

How to take part?

Step 1: SIGN UP

Register and then start training, get others involved and on the 21st September lace up your shoes and run or walk 5km, 10km or 21km in tandem with more than 100 ranger teams across the continent!

Be sure to choose Southern African Wildlife College (K9) – Greater Kruger Area as the ranger team you want to support! 

Step 2: Donate towards the Challenge

Alongside raising awareness for Rangers, and as part of the Challenge, you will be helping us to raise funds to train future rangers and further support our K9 Unit and Airwing who play an instrumental role in protecting targeted species such as rhino. 

All Wildlife Ranger Challenge donations will be matched by the
Scheinberg Relief Fund effectively doubling your contribution!

Step 3: Share our message

If you are running or walking with us be sure to tag the SAWC on Facebook or Instagram so we can share your stories!
