Kick it for Kenya - 5K Walk / Race-athon

Join us in the Kick it for Kenya walk / race-athon as we raise funding to support the operational costs of the Kibera Girls Soccer Academy.
Where: Cheesman Park, Denver Colorado
When: Sunday, June 26th @ 9:00am
Register Now:
More Information:  The Kick it for Kenya walk/race is a fundraiser for the Kibera Girls Soccer Academy, which is a free secondary school for young women living in the Kibera Slums of Nairobi, Kenya.  Not only does the school provide free education, but offers a host of athletic opportunities and artistic programming. Secondary education in Kenya is not free, and in areas like Kibera, women are not afforded the opportunity to pursue high school the same way men do.  Only 8% of women in Kibera ever attend a high school as the gender inequalities are that drastic.  Kibera Girls Soccer Academy addresses the gender gaps and empowers young women to become the leaders of their communities and Kenya.

You can register to run, register as a virtual runner, sign up to volunteer, or donate from the website.
