About This Activity

Book It for Amom 5K & Kids Fun Run-February 22, 2014

Proceeds from Book It for Amom will support educational improvement for children of underserved communities in Cameroon. Locally, we are asking all participants to donate elementary level books to be given to a Charlotte intercity school, Bruns Academy. Book donation drop boxes will be located at packet pick-up and the race check in site on race morning.
Many rural Cameroon schools have few or no books. More than half the students drop out before they even reach high school. Amom, which means “keep trying” will use the funds raised to invest in educational textbooks. More than 20,000 students have benefited from the new learning materials, restoration of health facilities, and equipment that improved the water supply.
