Rafiki Run 2016


Make a difference in the lives of our friends in Kenya by sponsoring Anna and Taylor as they run in a 5K this Thanksgiving.

Anna and Taylor are gearing up to run in the Seattle Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day. For 5 years, the children have participated in kids’ marathon events in Nashville, Knoxville, and Seattle for our annual RAFIKI RUN. And now, for the second year in a row, we are going to run as a family in a Thanksgiving morning 5K race for the Rafiki Run.  (“Rafiki” is the word for “friend” in Kiswahili.)  This is a fundraising program for Children of the Kingdom, the child sponsorship program of Share International, Inc.

Between 2009 and 2015, a small group of children have participated in the Rafiki Run and have raised over $21,000 for the children in Kenya through running races in honor of children around the world.  

With year-end giving just around the corner, would you consider sponsoring Anna and Taylor in this race and pledging a dollar amount per mile? (They each are running 3 miles.)

Give today and make a difference in the life of a child around the world.

Your secure, online tax-deductible donation to Children of the Kingdom helps fund our sponsorship program providing education and support to children in need in Kenya.
