We run, trek, cycle, climb and walk. We do it to support and strengthen health care systems across the continent of Africa. If you’re looking for a challenge, join us, we’ll be behind you every step of the way. Test your limits on one of our running, biking or hiking events, enjoy the unique opportunity of visiting an AMREF project before completing one of AMREF’s African Challenges, or even organise your own event. Whatever you choose to do, have fun, challenge yourself, make new friends, and help AMREF save and transform even more lives in Africa’s poorest communities.
AMREF is very pleased to introduce Mara Yamauchi, our new Running Ambassador.
“Jambo! I am delighted to accept the role of UK Running Ambassador for AMREF. After spending my childhood in Kenya, Africa is very close to my heart. So I am supporting AMREF because its work in improving health in Africa is so important.”
Mara is the second fastest female British marathon runner ever, and was named after the Mara river in Kenya, so she is the perfect person to promote and support AMREF’s running programme.
Mara will be providing preparation tips for all Team AMREF runners and signed goodies will be up for grabs for the top fundraisers in each running event! Listed below are the exciting events you can take part in in 2013.
For more information please get in touch with AMREF's events team by emailing email@example.com or calling Roisin on 020 7269 5520.
