About Fundnation

Join the global celebration in tribute to the iconic Nelson Mandela! Participate in the Virtual Mandela Day Walk & Run alongside participants worldwide. Wherever you may be, unite with us in commemorating this significant international Mandela Day!


Mandela Day is an annual global celebration that takes place on 18 July to honour the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela. This day is a call to action for individuals, communities, and organisations to take time to reflect on Mandela's values and principles and to make a positive impact in their own communities.

Why get involved?

There is much still to be done. Inequity continues to grow. Climate change, war and conflict are leading to widespread displacement and impoverishment. It is still in our hands to combat poverty and inequity.

This year, we are excited to welcome you to join our Virtual Mandela Day Walk and Run! 

Embrace the opportunity to contribute by making a donation and receiving your very own special virtual ID race number. Wear your race number proudly on your shirt as you walk or run from any corner of the globe on Saturday, July 20, 2024. Let's promote social justice and keep Madiba's memory alive and come together in celebrating this global icon!

The highly anticipated 2024 Mandela Day Walk and Run event is scheduled to take place in Johannesburg, South Africa on July 20th at DP World Wanderers Stadium.

This annual race is an important occasion in celebrating Nelson Mandela's legacy of unity, service and compassion. The event is expected to attract 10,000 walkers and runners united in spreading kindness and making a positive difference in their communities.
Participants have the opportunity to select from three distances—5km, 10km, and 21km.  The 5km route will go through parts of Illovo and Melrose North, while the 10km and 21km routes will include sections of Houghton Estate, passing by some iconic sites such as the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Nelson Mandela's residence.

This year we are so excited to add a Virtual Walk & Run to this event so that people from all over the world can join us in celebrating this important International day. 

Lace up your shoes and let's make a difference together!
