The Lady K. RUN21 Trail Run is in its 6th year, traditionally held in the first quarter of the year in Gaborone, one month before Diacore Gaborone Marathon and consists of a 21.1Km, 10Km and 5Km trail runs. Since its inception in 2013 the Lady K. RUN21 Trail Run has had an average growth registration rate of 75% annually with each year showing a considerable growth in runner participation, for 2018 we forecast between 1500 & 2000 registrations. To accommodate this growth of participation, we have invested in improvements of technical support, race timing, on-line registration, route selection and made effective strategic partnerships.

Funds raised from the annual LKCT fundraising initiatives and once off donations, are allocated into a funding pool which will then be disbursed annually or on a project to project basis. These funds are disbursed into two main focus points namely (1) Disability fund; specialized wheel chairs and special needs/ support for the disabled and elderly and (2) Early Childhood Development (ECD); centres and ECD teacher training. As the Trust acknowledges the need for sustainable giving, it allocates its funds to dedicated projects that can demonstrate good governance and financial discipline in their support of the disadvantaged in Botswana. It does so through a grant application system. Approved grants are a result of NGOs successfully passing our Grant Application process which allows us to identify suitable projects to fund. Projects and initiatives that receive support from the Trust are evaluated quarterly on a case by case basis by the Board of Trustees.

The Trust ensures that funds are used for their intended purpose through a robust monitoring and evaluation process. Over the years the Trust has supported over 46 charities and disbursed over P15 million through various grants nationwide.
