Charity & Donations 2023.


You are invited to make your 2023 Kilimanjaro Marathon event experience even more meaningful by doing something truly powerful – creating your personal fundraising project for charity!

Our 2023 Charity

It is estimated that as many as 5,000 children a year develop cancer in Tanzania, yet less than 20% ever reach a treatment site and with that, a chance to survive.

This means, thousands of children are suffering and dying every year without reaching any cancer care. Tumaini La Maisha is working with government and faithbased hospitals to find these missing children and offer them chemotherapy and other treatments entirely free of charge.

The short video below shows that we have gone from treating less than 100 children with survival outcomes of less than ten percent to treating over 720 children with survival outcomes closer to 50 sometimes 65%. Although this progress is significant, much more progress is needed to reach every child in need.
