CHARITY PARTNERS

Over the years Nick Butter has worked with many non-profits, NGOs, and charitable causes around the world. Since Nick's sporting journey began he has always had a focus of supporting the people and the planet while he runs. Nick, with help from his team, and thousands of supporters from around the planet have helped to raise in excess of £1.2 million in charitable donations. In 2019 Nick set up his own non-profit The 196 Foundation. Below are a list of causes Nick actively supports. If you're interested in the environment, Free Your Footprint is Nick's initiative working to become the environmental hub for all runners.
