The Kipsongo Project 5K Run/Walk is an annual event benefitting The Kipsongo Project, a 501 c3 non-profit organization based in Kipsongo Slum in Kenya. The Project aims to improve the lives of those living in Kipsongo Slum by equipping community members with the tools they need to earn an income and contribute positively to society. To do this, the Project employs women in the slum to make jewelry, clothing, and home goods items, and then connects the women to the global market by assisting them in selling their products in the United States and globally. Money that is raised through sales and other fundraising initiatives goes back to the community and funds various programs including children's nutrition and education programs, a micro-finance program, health programs, and more.

The Project was started nine years ago by Krystina Finn and Lindsey Casagrande who were living in Kenya at the time. This 5K race, started by Krystina, was one of the first fundraisers held for the Project. Shortly afterwards, Krystina was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and passed away in December of 2014 after a long and courageous battle. This race is a way to honor Krystina's legacy and to carry on her dream of helping the women and children in Kipsongo Slum. Please join us in helping to do so!

We will also have jewelry, clothing, and other items made by the women in Kipsongo Slum available for purchase, an auction, face painting, and other fun activities for children to participate in. Children age 12 and under can participate for free and don't need to register. All proceeds from this event go directly to The Kipsongo Project.

We hope to see you there!
