Running for a Good Cause

On 21st July 2019, Team Goodwille are joining thousands of runners winding their way through Central London together for the ASICS London 10K 2019!

Running the London 10K for charity has become a tradition and this summer we are running to raise money for our company charity MicroLoan Foundation. Their incredible work helps the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa to work their way out of poverty. Goodwille has supported MicroLoan for several years and we are proud to support their work which has a lasting impact.

Support our runners Rachael (Senior Financial Controller), Jacqui (HR Manager), Johanna (Marketing Executive) and Isabelle (Corporate Legal Assistant) and help us raise funds for a good cause on our JustGiving page. All contributions, however large or small, are greatly appreciated and make a longstanding impact and difference. All funds raised for MicroLoan Foundation will provide more loans and business training to women in sub-Saharan Africa.

About the MicroLoan Foundation

MicroLoan is a different kind of charity, offering hope, not handouts to impoverished women in rural sub-Saharan Africa. Their small business loans and business training enable these women to build businesses and move towards financial sustainability. By giving hope and not handouts, MicroLoan empowers women in sub-Saharan to work their way out of poverty. Read more about the impact that MicroLoan has on women’s life on microloan.org.uk.

A Good Deed – Running for Charity

Running for a Good Cause.

On 14 October 2018, The Royal Parks Half Marathon takes place in London. The race takes runners on a stunning tour through London; past some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks and through four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

Running The Royal Parks Half Marathon is not only a good way to do some sightseeing of our beautiful capital, but it’s also the perfect occasion to run for a good cause and raise money for charity!

We are running for our company charity MicroLoan Foundation. MicroLoan Foundation is a UK-based charity that empowers women in sub-Saharan to work their way out of poverty. Through small loans, business training and ongoing guidance, these women learn to build businesses capable of sustained success. By giving hope and not handouts, MicroLoan provides the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa with the tools and skills needed to move towards financial sustainability and to become self-sufficient.

Help us raise money for MicroLoan! Do a Good Deed and donate to our cause on our donation page. The money you help us raise will provide more loans and business training to women living in sub-Saharan Africa.
