About This Activity

Run the World is a chartiy fun run to support empowering literacy education in Africa. All ages are welcome, and don't forget to dress up as your favorite book character! The event will be a fun run, back-to-school celebration, and book-themed costume party all in one.

Proceeds from the race will Chasing Two Rabbits at Once, an organization that provides empowering literacy education to hunter-gatherer children in Cameroon, Africa. Our Sesame Street-style educational content is delivered via mp3 players that are powered by hand-crank, and enables children to “chase two rabbits at once”: building early literacy skills, while still learning the ways of the forest.

By participating, you can help us to reach out to families across the miles, to inspire the love of learning and improve the lives of communities around the world. Learn more at
