Our mission is to lift children in the community of Kaptagat, Kenya out of poverty by increasing their educational opportunities.


We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization primarily managed by athletes and alumni of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs cross-country and track and field programs. This all began after a small group of athletes spent three weeks in Kenya, where we were inspired by the incredible people we met and things we saw. 



We host community events, sell coffee, and fundraise to maintain several programs that provide aid to the community around Kaptagat, Kenya.
