Comrades Marathon runners have raised millions of Rands for good causes since the race began. 2018 Comrades Marathon entrants who make a minimum donation of R50 to the charity of their choice (or to the Amabeadibeadi Charity Drive) will automatically be entered the Comrades Toyota Win-a-Car Competition.
Runners who donate towards the Amabeadibeadi Charity Drive will have their donations split equally amongst the six Official Comrades Charities.
The six official charity organisations for the 2018 Comrades Marathon are:
- Community Chests of Durban & Pietermaritzburg
- Wildlands Conservation Trust
- World Vision South Africa
- Childhood Cancer Foundation of SA (CHOC)
- Hillcrest AIDS Foundation Trust
- The Hospice Palliative Care Association (HPCA)
