Update on Run for Togo 5k/10k
A quick update:
WOW! So much has happened on the front lines of our AIDS/HIV outreach. Our 1st fundraiser in the U.S. is June 21. Run for Togo is a run/walk event in northern Kentucky.
We have received generous corporate donations and continue to plan for long term goals. It has been such an encouragement! As we close in on 1 month to our event, we are busy organizing and delegating responsibilities. We have beautiful t-shirts to sell as well as silent auction items. Pray with us as we see to all the details!
The race for Togo! (Run for Togo)
June 21, 2014 is the date to remember!!!! We are busy getting the last few things in order so we can start registration for the Run for Togo! It will take place at Calvary Christian School at 5955 Taylor Mill Rd., Covington, KY.
The run/walk will consist of a few distances (5k, 10k, etc.) over a rolling 1-mile course. It will be part trail and part asphalt. We will post details in the next week about exactly what to expect and how to register.
What is so special and fantastic about this race is the low overhead so all of your money goes directly to the clinic in Africa. Thanks to CCS for allowing us to use their facilities for no cost, which alleviates the need for permits and police for road closures.
This is a charity event, meaning, if you don’t want to run or walk, please donate or sponsor a runner! Or, a thought might be to donate race t-shirts or medals. I (Rachelle U.) can be reached at 859-468-4564 if you would like to know how to get involved further.
