The Amazing Maasai Global Run (Team DC)
Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM (MST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
On Saturday, August, 30th, join us for the 1st annual Amazing Maasai Global Run! To coincide with Year 4 of the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya, we the ask that you donate a 10km run and show your support for girls education in Kenya.
Maeve Whelan-Wuest will lead the group run in DC, and you'll be in great company globally! Runners in cities all over the world will be lacing up their running shoes and hitting the road to honor our amazing girls that we are sponsoring through high school. Multiple "micro-runs" around the world will be held that day, in conjunction with the Marathon in Kenya.
Maeve will be providing your runner bibs (it's an organized run, afterall!) and leading you through a fantastic 10km run that morning. Runners should meet at the front of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History at 10th and Constitution Ave NW (the non-Mall side). Expect a lovely trot around the National Mall and Monuments!
Join us and the global running community in coming together to run in unison for girls education!
This is an informal, unorganized fun run for our worldwide running community. Participants can run or walk, either solo or with friends, to show our Amazing Girls in Kenya that the world supports them and believes their education is important. It is NOT a race, so there will be no course markings, race timings/results or insurance etc. Neither the Amazing Maasai Girls Project not Your City Captain are responsible for you, your personal safety, security or health. Your run entirely at will and at your own risk - this is just for fun!
When & Where
The Amazing Maasai Girls Project
The Amazing Maasai Girls Project (AMGP) is a US registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded with the mission of providing secondary school scholarships to Maasai girls in rural Kenya.
The AMGP was established in 2010 by a small group of running friends who believe in the importance of keeping girls in school and out of childhood marriage. Since then, we have raised more than $100,000 thru running-related events and fundraisers and currently sponsors 38 Amazing Girls through four years of high school education.
Every year we hold the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya as fundraiser for our scholarship program, as well as other events closer to home, such as the Amazing Maasai Global Run (see below)... Karibu! Join us!
