Join us for the 2021 Ripples of Change Marathon


We encourage and ask that you check in on Instagram and Facebook 


What is it?

A marathon that EVERYONE can do. Participants will have the month of April 2021 to complete 26.2 miles (less than one mile a day!). Run, jog or walk whenever and wherever you want to during the month of April to get your miles in. Run by yourself or with your family or group. Then all participants of the “Ripples of Change Virtual Marathon” will plan to run their final marathon mile on May 1. (again, wherever you wish. That is the beauty of a virtual marathon). If you have a group or team in your area you can all meet and celebrate your accomplishment by running together.


Your miles will be big steps towards changing lives in Ethiopia by helping to raise money to provide education, a safe place to live and clean water for those in need and to help raise awareness through Habesha Momma. Along with helping to make positive changes in the lives of others, you will be getting active and accomplishing something to be proud of. If you are already a runner or walker, this is a wonderful opportunity to put your miles towards a good cause. If not, this is a great reason to get yourself moving and make a positive change in your life while helping change the lives of others.

Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.
