Run for Zimbabwe is a a project that combines the joy of riding with a good cause. A journey of 4 European guys longboarding a different country, every summer, to create awareness regarding the problems prevailing in Zimbabwe.
The riders this year (Sweden 2010): Alex (Germany), Alfred (Sweden), Peter (Sweden) and PA (Sweden).
The riders last year (Ireland 2009): Alex (Germany), Alfred (Sweden), Peter (Sweden) and Ralf (Germany).
In 2009 the guys from RFZ toured Ireland, from south to north, and raised 1.100,00 € for the “Albert Street Refugee School” Project at the Elias fund by selling shirts.
In 2010 the challenge is to cross Sweden from Kappelskär (East Coast) to Varberg (West Coast), a distance of approximately 700 km, in order to bring the spirit of “Run For Zimbabwe” to this Scandinavian country.
