All proceeds benefit:

Friends In Africa is a charity which hosts quarterly, two-day free medical clinics that care for the poor, sick and starving people of Senegal through medical and dental treatment, feeding programs and health education. At each clinic we treat an average of 600 desperate patients and at each feeding program we provide a nutritious meal to thousands of malnourished people.

My Father's House is a children's home which provides a family environment with a loving house mother and father who care for no more than 10 children at a time. The children are provided nourishing meals, enrolled in a private school and nurtured, helping them grow into independent, family oriented, productive adults.


Run Route:

Proceed across King Street from start (at 1338 King St.) and along Bedford Road. Turn left onto Locust Road then left onto King Street (loop three times).
