About This Activity

Race fee includes T-Shirt. Race t-shirts guaranteed for registrations received by 10/10/2016.

Run or Walk, and join the Compassion4Kids story by helping children and teens in Kenya, Africa.  In 2015, through the help of a race and a concert, we raised $15,000 to provide gutter systems and clean water storage tanks to the dry areas of Makueni, Kenya.  These fundraising events also led to the sponsorship of more children through Compassion International’s child-sponsorship program. 

In 2016, it was our goal to provide funds that will benefit two communities in Kenya.  100% of the profits will go directly to Kenya!  In rural Makueni, we will help finance building construction projects (i.e. classrooms), while in the Korogocho slum of Nairobi, urban youth will be trained and equipped for jobs, trades, and careers through a new youth development program.   This race was very successful !   $4,000 raised and being put to use !

  2017 will also go to the youth in Makueni, Africa.  Resource left will be needing encyclopedias, and we are continuing to look at clean water resources.

Hope is growing in these African communities, and we want to fan the flame of that hope!  Thank you for supporting our vision!

Packet pick up and registration at Trinity: Friday October 20 , 9 a.m-5 pm., Saturday 7-9 a.m.
