WHO ARE WE?

The Story so far...

Running Well is a charitable foundation which provides people living in underdeveloped and remote parts of Uganda with access to clean water primarily by building water boreholes. The charity’s other aim is to encourage people to take up running or any other personal challenge to help raise funds for the projects it supports.

Running Well operates on a purely voluntary basis and its Trustees and members manage all the projects it supports directly themselves. The Trustees between them have extensive experience in business management and operations, investment and fund management, financing, project management, human resources and fund-raising, as well as undertaking other charitable work and participating in sporting events.

100% of donations go directly to our projects

Every £3.50 donated to us has given at least one person clean water for life

A water borehole is tangible; you will know how we use your donation and the people it helps

OUR EVENTS

Over the years

The idea of establishing Running Well was first conceived by our Founder, Julian Gabriel, following a successful fund-raising campaign he undertook to raise enough sponsorship to build a water borehole in a remote part of Uganda called Irundu by running six marathons in seven days across the Sahara desert.
