- Meeting Point: Corner of Salvia & Golden Hills Road, Golden
- Meeting Time: 09:30am on August 30th
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 volunteer-run organization. Our mission is to provide high school school scholarships to Maasai girls in rural Kenya, whose families would otherwise have no means to afford the school fees.
We believe ALL girls deserve the opportunity to learn, to pursue an education, employment and independence. We also believe it's time to END female genital mutilation (FGM) and END childhood marriage in Kenya. Sending girls to secondary school is the very best way to do this in Kenya.
Since 2010 we have raised more than $150,000 and currently sponsor 61 Amazing Girls. Every year we hold the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya and the GLOBAL RUN as fundraisers for our scholarship program. Karibu! Join us!
