Pass It On Africa (formerly Passing It On) is a Brighton-based charity that works tirelessly to build schools and support education in some of the poorest parts of Africa. They achieve this through their fund-raising events in the UK, including their flagship superhero-themed races, the HEROES RUN.
The charity was born in September 2004 when two Brightonians (who should have been focusing more of their attentions on getting grown up jobs, pensions and wives) thought it would be much more fun to get dressed up as superheroes, run around Dublin and raise money for Kenyan children.
A special “thank you” evening was held at Bar 107 on Brighton seafront and details of what has been raised over the last 12 months and future events were outlined all of which can be seen at www.pioafrica.org.uk
