It was a glorious day for the 3rd annual Kenya Connect 5K in Wamunyu. Running on the red earth roads through the market and up into the hills of Wamunyu, over 200 students, teachers, and community members ran the 5k race on a beautiful sunny day. A celebration of education, this event recognized Kenya Connect programs and the top runners received backpacks, books, and prizes from SunKing . In addition six students were awarded for their prize winning essays and poems in honor of Global Hand Washing Day.
The next Kenya Connect 5K: Running on Two Continents will be held on Saturday, March 24 in Ellicott City, Maryland. Details will be posted in January, but save the date.
