The Story

EVENT DATE: May 20, 2018

Each day, thousands of young Malawian women walk over 10K (6.2 miles) just to get to school. AGE Africa will honor these women by participating in the 39th Annual Capitol Hill Classic. This race provides you a unique opportunity to honor the young women who face this daunting challenge to get to school.

 

Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support the 234 scholarships aiding AGE Africa students. By participating in the Capitol Hill Classic and creating a support page on AGE Africa’s CrowdRise page you are helping to raise money to keep our scholars in school and engaged in the community.

 

Why participate in 10K A Day?

  • In Malawi, less than 6% of girls complete high school, but 90% of AGE Africa's scholars finish all four years.
  • Malawi has one of the highest child marriage rates in the world (near 50%) but less than 3% of AGE Africa’s students marry or bear children before the age of 18.

 

The Capitol Hill Classic 10K, 3K, and Fun Run is open to people of all ages (yes, babies and toddlers in strollers are welcome!). To register, click here
