MAY 6TH, 2018 SAVE THE DATE
Wando International is lacing up our running shoes and gearing up for the 2018 XTERRA Renegade 5K Trail Run Challenge.
This is an incredible event taking place in our own backyard at Bonelli Park in San Dimas, California.
If you’ve never explored Bonelli Park this is an AMAZING opportunity to join us, because this gem of a location is known for it’s scenic lake and beautiful forest views.
What are we racing for?
3 Mile Race To Empower
We’re using this 5K Trail Run as an opportunity to not only get fit, but to raise awareness about our nonprofit’s Career-Development programs for people experiencing poverty in Uganda and in the U.S.
Why not support a great cause AND get in shape at the same time?! Sounds like a WIN/WIN if you ask us.
And just like that…a Wando Running Team was born.
So, when bouncing around ideas for team names that would let people know who we were and why we’re running, the name that stood out the most was the Wando Bead Runners!
If you caught the Blade Runner pun you’re a smart cookie. But, “BEAD RUNNERS” because of the Bead Program Wando International has implemented in Uganda for women needing to develop skills and create a business that allows them to escape the slums.
Team Bead Runners’ main goal is to raise enough funds to support these programs to give women in need the opportunity to become self-sufficient.
Their FUNDRAISING GOAL IS $1500 which will provide Training and Workspace for 60+ women to develop themselves AND their businesses.
Team Bead Runners has already started meeting weekly for training!
You can catch them EVERY SUNDAY in Bonelli Park at 8:30AM. AND they’re still looking for more runners to join them for the MAY 6TH 5K TRAIL RUN!
We cordially invite YOU to come be a part of this enthusiastic running club that is Racing To Empower Women Business Owners AND Business-Development programs to help people experiencing poverty in the US and around the world!
