The Kenyan Community in Chicago is glad to once again be hosting the Kenyan Marathon Dinner on Friday Oct 10th 2014. This year’s event is going to be held at the Hilton Hotel’s Waldorf Room, 3rd Floor, 720 South Michigan Ave, Chicago IL.
The Kenyan Marathon dinner has been held every year since 1998 in honor of the Elite Athletes from Kenya participating in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
The purpose of the dinner is to welcome these gifted runners to the city of Chicago in true Kenyan hospitality and to give Chicago Kenyans and friends of Kenya an opportunity to meet and socialize with them. We look forward to highlighting their achievements and also expressing our community’s appreciation for the exceptional image they portray for the East African nation.
The Kenyan Marathon Dinner attracts a diverse group of runners and supporters from outside the Kenyan community. The guests usually relish the chance to enjoy various aspects of Kenyan culture including the authentic Kenyan cuisine and various arts and entertainment.
Various local high school and collegiate track & field teams have attended the event before which gives them a chance to socialize with the elite athletes of the highest caliber.
Each year we have recruited various partners and sponsors for the dinner. The Kenyan Marathon Dinner is a Non For Profit Organization and depends entirely on sponsorship to cover all expenditure related with hosting the dinner.
Previous sponsors include the Chepkwony Foundation, World Vision, Transcend The Movie, Moody Church, Kenwood Academy High, North Park University, University Of Chicago, Vision For Kenya & TopDonn Entertainment.
