KENYA 2018

GO THE #EXTRAMILE

Join the adventure and bring hope to children living in extreme poverty by running, walking or cycling through rural Kenya in June 2018.

This is an opportunity to set yourself a new goal, fight poverty and change children's lives around the world. You'll get to experience Kenyan culture and wildlife, visit Compassion projects, engage with the children and their families, and take part in a special sports day with the children.
In 2018, you can join the community of runners, cyclists and trekkers who are going the extra mile in Kenya. Challenge yourself to go the extra mile, to run, trek or cycle while experiencing the life-changing work of Compassion. Will you take part in the ultimate endurance event and fundraise to see more children lifted out of poverty?

  • Run: half marathon, full marathon or ultra-marathon
  • Cycle: 120km mountain bike
  • Trek: 42km & Ultra Trek 63km

FUNDRAISE WITH A DIFFERENCE

10 children sponsored

Knowing the incredible impact one-to-one sponsorship has on children in poverty, we ask that you aim to find sponsors for 10 children. For every new sponsored child, your fundraising target will be reduced by £1,000. Your target starts at £10,000. That way, if you find sponsors for 10 children you've achieved your goal. Similarly, you could find 8 sponsors and £2,000 in donations and you've also reached the target! We have years of experience in fundraising so we'll give you plenty of advice and tips.

VISIT YOUR SPONSORED CHILD

If you sponsor a child in the country where your Muskathlon is taking place, you'll get the opportunity to meet them! See with your own eyes the incredible difference your sponsorship is making.
