DESCRIPTION

Please join us on Saturday morning, May 21st, for the 2022 Kick for Kenya and Clean Water 5K!

Run for a cause – all proceeds from the race will be used to provide a home for a multigenerational family in need in rural eastern Kenya this summer plus clean water for communities throughout Africa. The home will serve as a model for the community, incorporating an innovative new fireplace design developed by a Boise State Public Health professor in consultation with collaborators in Kenya that greatly improves indoor air quality for vulnerable women, infants, and children.
