Run For Rwanda 2018

Run For Rwanda 2018


Thanks for your interest in the Run For Rwanda, a race held each year simultaneously in Colorado Springs and Kibali, Rwanda. Over the past 10 years, the Run For Rwanda has raised funds to construct a now-completed health clinic that is providing life-saving care to the community of Kibali Rwanda. It has also funded school scholarships for dozens of youth who otherwise could not have completed their educations. Beginning this year, the race will be funding a community development and training center, which will provide a host benefits to help the community, including:

  • A vocational training facility
  • Income generating activities
  • Classes on entrepreneurial thinking
  • Savings programs
  • Classes on improving agricultural crop yield 
  • A sports field
  • A wholesome place for community members to gather
  • Group sessions to help steward traditional values and customs 
  • And more! 

Please join in helping our friends in Kibali take the next step toward breaking the grip of extreme poverty and thriving. Make a tax-deductible contribution today, or create your own fundraising page and spread the word.
