Our mission is to lift children in the community of Kaptagat, Kenya out of poverty by improving 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 and fund-raise to provide opportunities for children to attend high school and to construct our own high school, which will one day provide educational opportunities for hundreds of children per year.
