Please join us on Saturday morning, May 21st, for the 2022 Kick for Kenya and Clean Water 5K!

Run for a cause - proceeds from the race will be used to provide a home for a multigenerational family in need in rural eastern Kenya this summer plus clean water for communities throughout Africa. The home will serve as a model for the community, incorporating appropriate building materials technology and an innovative new fireplace design developed by a Boise State Public Health professor in consultation with collaborators in Kenya that greatly improves indoor air quality for vulnerable women, infants, and children. Any excess funds raised will be invested where needed most, in particular to provide educational opportunities and improve public health.
