More than an event,
it's a movement
At its core, Deli2Sea began with just 20 individuals raising funds for a female running academy (Endurocad) during the end of lockdown of 2020. But its impact quickly expanded when we witnessed Professor Peter Ryan's collection of 450 coffee cup lids on Dalebrook Beach in 2019.
This prompted conversations with businesses, like Chardonnay Deli, and sea-loving customers about making better decisions for our environment. From its humble beginnings as a fundraiser for female athletes, Deli2Sea has grown into a movement with a bigger heart – one that beats for our planet.
Walk, run, or wiggle, the 12km journey from Chardonnay Deli, Constantia Uitsig to Dalebrook Beach is a testament to our commitment.
Since its inception, Deli2Sea has achieved remarkable milestones in promoting coastal conservation and community engagement:
2020:20 runners raised R20,000 for Endurocad
2021: 330 participants raised R25,000 for The Beach Co-Op
Save our Seas Foundation provided each participant with hemp tote bags and reusable coffee cup
and provided funding for the Care Collective Shark mural on Dalebrtook Beach
