Race to Raise Funds for Girls' Rescue Center

September 1, 2010 
The Greeley Tribune 

A 5K/10K walk and run to benefit the Kenya Girls' Rescue Center by Christ Community Church in Greeley is set for Sept. 18.

The race, which starts with registration at 7:30 a.m. and begins at 9 a.m., will benefit the Olooloitikosh Project, which helps girls avoid practices of female genital mutilation and forced marriages. The center is a way for them to escape their abusive families and build their own lives.

The race costs $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the race. If you bring a clean, nearly new clothing item you can get $5 off the price of the race. All sizes and styles are OK.

Register in person at the church, 1301 15th St. in Greeley. You can go to to print out a form to take to the church.
