2020 "Run to Rwanda" Virtual Fun Run
Sunday, September 6th through Sunday, September 20th
Lets run 8,862 miles to Rwanda!
Sophie Sharp, Clyde Hill resident, 11th grade student at The Overlake School, is once again organizing a fun run to raise awareness and funding to benefit Rwanda Girls Initiative (RGI). The last 2 fun runs have been hugely successful community events and raised over $55,000 for RGI.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many events and plans for this summer. As a result of this, Sophie decided to change the event to a virtual RUN TO RWANDA!
GOAL: Collectively run 8,862 miles from Seattle to Rwanda!
DETAILS: Participants will be given 2 weeks, from the 6th until the 20th of September, 2020, to run or walk as many miles as they can and they will be able to submit their miles on our website! You can also collect pledges for your miles and track your progress through your own fundraising page.
The last mile will be run by the Gashora Girls Academy Students into their beautiful school in Rwanda which we'll share with all participants via video.
REGISTRATION: Registration is $35 ($40 after Aug 23) and there is now an option for team fund raising! Get your families and friends together to see how much money you can raise for this important cause. You will be able to create your own fundraising page where you can track your progress! You can also do pledge fundraising using the template included on the race website!
We are so thankful to Sophie and her family for supporting our students at Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology!
