What is it?

A marathon that EVERYONE can do. Participants will have the month of May 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 May 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 at 12pm EST on June 3, 2017 since May 31 falls during the week.  (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 on the the 3rd and celebrate your accomplishment by running together.

Why?

Your miles will be big steps towards changing lives in Ethiopia by helping to raise money to provide education 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.

Other Information
You will check in weekly to report your miles completed. If you need guidance in how to complete your marathon over the month of May a training schedule will be provided for you by a certified running coach, as well as any support or help you may need along the way.
