The Run for Rwanda is an event that brings together runners on two continents for an outstanding 5K race and the opportunity to help loosen the grip of poverty on a needy African community. As runners line up for the race in Colorado Springs, runners in Kibali, Rwanda, will also gather for a simultaneous 5K race. Proceeds will fund a Health Clinic in Kibali. Includes a free 1K fun run for kids 10 and under.
Runners may register individually or as part of a team. Also includes a barefoot runner division.
Event features live African music and authentic Rwandan handicrafts for prizes and purchase.
