The race will bring thousands of children (both boys and girls) and adults together to promote girl’s Education. Our Because I am a Girl Campaign has already reached many millions of girls around the world and has changed the lives of girls here in Ethiopia.
It has inspired them to take leadership to positively change their lives and reshape their future.
Some 4,000 children under the age of 11 including those with disabilities are expected to take part and spread this year’s message “I am a girl child, do not make me a child mother."
The race will be held on 21 November, 2015 at the Ethiopian Youth Sport Academy and will start at 8:15 am.

We hope to see you there!
