Did You Know

This is the 6th year Global Health Partnerships has worked with local, elite Kenyan athletes to put on this race. The money raised in previous years from the race went towards the purchase of an ambulance (that now serves several villages in Kenya) and toward the opening of a maternity center. This year we are happy to collaborate with Bernalillo County.
