This race is to celebrate the late Nelson Mandela Birthday. Proceeds from this race will go to the Sole Sergeants Charity to help the needy receive serviceable shoes in the U.S.A. This is an 10K road race and it is to educate others of how Mandela retained some involvement in international affairs after his retirement and prior to his death. He returned the U.S. on several occasions to speak to different organizations on the need for economic assistance in Africa. He maintained great relationships with President George W. Bush and the Clintons. Before his death, he met President Obama.
