Event Details

Join us for the 4th annual

Amazing Maasai GLOBAL RUN! 

To coincide with the seventh year of the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya, we will be DONATING A 5KM RUN/WALK  to show our support for GIRLS EDUCATION in Kenya.

Team Montreal will be in good company globally! Last year more than 1,000 runners in cities all over the world laced up their running shoes and hit the road to honor our amazing girls that we are sponsoring through high school.

How it Works: 

1) REGISTER: 

Sign up on this page to donate your run or walk. 

2) FIND YOUR TEAM

If you register on this page, you will be automatically be added to this location's team and your race number and swag will be sent to the city team captain. If you need to find a local team, you can find teams on our website if you'd like to run in a group. 

3) RUN! 

Go solo or go with a team! Any time on that day, head out for a walk or run in solidarity for girls' education. Run knowing you are helping change a young girl's life in Kenya. 

4) SEND US A SELFIE

We need proof of your run/ walk! Take a picture of yourself running in a RED T-SHIRT & wearing your bib. Email it to us and shar it on social mediat with the hastag #globalrun and #donateyourrun. We'll create a video mashup of all the global runs around the world to showcase this year's efforts.

FAQs 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Send us an at info@amazinggirls.org and we will get straight back to you!

How far is the run/walk?
You are free to run or walk as far as you would like, since this is not a formal race. Typically, our teams organize 5 & 10km routes. You can confirm with your team captain or contact us at info@amazinggirls.org.


Can I run in a Team or Group?
Yes! We have created Facebook groups for our existing teams to share run info! All teams are listed on our website. If you are interested in leading a new group, please contact info@amazinggirls.org and we will give you marketing and admin support to help make it super simple!

What does my cash donation go towards? 
Your job is to donate your run or walk in solidarity for educating girls in Kenya. All donations towards your run will go towards a four-year scholarship fund. Each year from these donations, we are able to sponsor 8-12 girls on four year high school scholarships because of the Global Run donations. 

Disclaimer:

This is an informal, unorganized fun virtual run NOT a race, so there will be no course markings, race timings/results or insurance etc. Neither the Amazing Maasai Girls Project nor 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 simply for fun and for an amazing cause: educating Kenyan girls

Organizer

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 +60 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!
