13th Annual Kipsongo Project 5K Run/Walk Race Description

The Kipsongo Project 5K Run/Walk is an annual event benefiting The Kipsongo Project, a 501 c3 non-profit organization based in Kipsongo Slum in Kenya. The Project aims to improve the lives of those living in Kipsongo Slum by equipping community members with the tools they need to earn an income and contribute positively to society. The Project funds various programs including children's nutrition and education programs, a micro-finance program, health programs, and more. 

The Project was started 13 years ago by Krystina Finn and Lindsey Casagrande who were living in Kenya at the time. This 5K race, started by Krystina, was one of the first fundraisers held for the Project. Shortly afterwards, Krystina was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and passed away in December of 2014 after a long and courageous battle. This race is a way to honor Krystina's legacy and to carry on her dream of helping the women and children in Kipsongo Slum.

Funds raised from this event will help fund the Project's current initiatives including:

  • Children's Education - primary, secondary, and college students
  • Adults' Education - computer classes, seamstress classes
  • Microfinance - small business establishment and development
  • Solar Power Irrigation - allows farmers to grow crops during dry seasons, thereby increasing income
  • Dairy Cow and Poultry projects
  • Children's Nutrition Program - provides three nutritious meals a day to children enrolled in our program
  • Preventive Health - distribution of water filters, bed nets, and providing health insurance to all employees
  • Curative Health - helping finance unexpected medical expenses for the Kipsongo community
  • Demonstration Garden - teaching the Kipsongo community about bio-intensive farming techniques
