Share Article

Habesha Momma's virtual marathon allows participants to accomplish a marathon in as little as 1 mile per day from anywhere around the globe during the month of April.

Habesha Momma embarks on it’s 2nd Annual Virtual Marathon where participants accomplish a marathon at their own pace during the month of April from anywhere around the globe. Consider yourself a marathon finisher with as little as 1 mile a day.

We are looking for both event sponsors and event participants. All participants must complete registration by April 1 by clicking on the Donate page of http://www.habeshamomma.org. Individual runners can join for $45, Couples for $80, and youth for $15. All participants receive a t-shirt and a finisher’s medal upon completion.

Event participation and sponsorship will enable Habesha Momma to continue to provide education to children in the Hawassa community of Ethiopia, as well as provide water filters to its families for 30 years! All event sponsors and teams will get recognition on Facebook and Twitter.

“We had so much fun last year interacting with folks from across the country participating in the marathon. Each mile walked, truly created ripples across the ocean helping to open our school and build water filters, priceless gifts for those who received them. Can't wait to see who joins us this year!”, said Andrea Gaines, President of Habesha Momma.

About Habesha Momma
Habesha Momma was formed because there are basic needs that our friends in Ethiopia were seeing, yet did not have the resources to help bring about change. Basic needs such as education, child welfare and clean water are scarcely provided in many areas. We have partnered with local friend Agegnehu Mulat to open a school in Hawassa, Ethiopia. We are also helping provide clean water, in the form of bio-sand water filters in a village outside of the capital of Addis Ababa.
