Run For Their Lives 5K Run/Walk in Lexington
The Inaugural Run For Their Lives 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run presented by 24000.ORG will be held on October 24, 2015, in Coldstream Park in Lexington, Kentucky with a start/finish near the Embassy Suites Lexington. The 1 Mile Fun Run will begin at 8:30a.m. with a timed 5K run/walk to follow at 9:00a.m. Race participants are encouraged to dress in costumes as this is a theme based 5k that will be fun for the whole family. Participants of the 5K will receive a t-shirt with registration and prizes will be awarded to the top finishers of each age group. Our goal is to raise funds for 15,000 mosquito nets to distribute in the eastern Uganda area of Africa.
Based in Georgetown, Kentucky, 24000.ORG has been a 501(c)3 organization since February 2012. The mission of 24000.ORG is to raise awareness and funding to help alleviate the nearly 24,000 preventable deaths that happen to children around the world each day. These deaths are from preventable causes such as drinking contaminated water, malaria, lack of food, etc. Since 2012, 24000.ORG has provided over 10,000 mosquito nets to villages in Eastern Uganda to help combat malaria.
