The Kijabe Hospital community took part in a charity run aimed at improving compassionate health care at the hospital on February 11th 2012.
The charity event offered a variety of options for participants, including competitive races and non-competitive runs and walks, as short as two kilometers, which is equivalent to 5/8 of a mile, which most people can walk in an hour or less.
To participate, runners and walkers generally contribute a registration fee of Ksh. 500 or collect pledges. In return, these participants enjoy an organized walk or run along scenic routes and often get snacks, drinks, a t-shirt, and other keepsakes.
Sponsors are encouraged to promote teams in the following categories:
"Fun Run" volunteers are needed for as little as a few hours to make the day successful for everyone. Activities can include stuffing information packets, accepting registrations, setting-up the race course, and handing out water to runners.
