Ethiopia Reads, Runs and Walks 2016 – Bay to Breakers 12k
May 16, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Friends of Ethiopia Reads in the Bay Area are getting together to run or walk Bay to Breakers together on Sunday May 15, 2016. We are aiming to recruit 100 runners/walkers to raise some sponsorship from friends to support Ethiopia Reads literacy and educational programs for children in Ethiopia.
Everyone had a wonderful time 6 years ago back in 2010, getting out for some exercise, watching the fun and frolics of Bay to Breakers and then meeting up afterwards for a picnic in Golden Gate Park. We got great support from donors, local businesses for sponsorship and walkers and runners and raised closest $20,000. This time, we are asking participants to aim to raise $100 each by getting a few friends or coworkers to sponsor them for a great cause. If we can get 100 runners raising $100 each, we will raise $10,000 for Ethiopia Reads!
Malcolm Clark and Frew Tibebu, local board members for Ethiopia Reads, will be arranging fruit, pastries and tea/coffee/juice afterwards.
