The Description

The kids at Mavuno Village love sports!  Several play basketball and soccer at school, and we have many runners!

Kili Trails is a weekend of sporting events near Mt. Kilimanjaro in Moshi, Tanzania, about 300 miles from Mavuno Village. 

We are raising funds to cover the cost of 10 kids from Mavuno Village (www.mavunovillage.org) to attend the Kili Trails event to run (www.kilitrails.com) - 4 kids will run the half marathon, and 6 will participate in the 6k!

The funds cover the groups' registration fees, lodging, and transportation.  The races are on January 28th and 29th!

Back Up Plan

We believe we can raise the funds we need to get these kids to the race!
