Kisumu World AIDS Marathon

Last year like the previous years, the CSO Network working with Safe Water and Aids Programme, Tuungane Project, CDC and the Brodsky Foundation, organized the Kisumu World Aids Marathon 2007 under the Banner of the Kisumu World Aids Marathon Group.

There were 42 and 21kms Marathon run and a 2km walk for children. We also had 3 junior runners who completed 11kms.

This annual globally recognized day-1st of December, brought together volunteer organizations like Aga Khan Hospital, St Johns Ambulance, Red Cross Society of Kenya, who all made sure that the over 150 runners were well taken care of. Support for the event came from Mon Amie, Manumarc Enterprises, Janivo Foundation, CDC with technical support from Joseph Ochieng and Alan Rubin. Gratitude also goes to all the different youth groups who managed the 42 stations and all those who shared their stories, songs, poems and challenges they have overcome to still live positively despite being HIV+.

Last years Marathon was flagged off by Sarah Obama who also officially opened the children’s recreation center at the Jomo Kenyatta Grounds. Planning this years Marathon begins in June.
