Strides for Africa is a fun event for all ages to participate and help us make global impact.  There are many options available to participants including a 5K run, 5K walk, team relay, 1.5 mile fun walk, and a kids fun run. Experience what millions of Africans experience on a daily basis by participating in the team relay event that demonstrates the rigors of water gathering in rural Africa. The event features a great course through along the Yahara River, through beautiful Tenney Park, and along Lake Mendota.

Our clean water and education give back projects in Africa provide participants a unique opportunity to see outcomes within impoverished African communities for better health, empowered youth, and ultimately transformed communities.
