This year Hawassa Hope invites you to participate in our very first Virtual 5K race benefitting our clean water initiative!
Between October 11th through the 17th you will have the opportunity to log a 5k (3 mile) run or walk wherever you are in the world and at the same time help us fund our next clean water project. Help us provide clean water to these families while also having a little fun! Race prize package will include a t-shirt, medal, glass water bottle, and printable bib!

Join our 5K to raise funds for a spring water project in Chirone, Ethiopia! This water project will provide over 5,500 people with easy access to clean water. Currently, this community has to purchase jarred water that is brought in from other sources via donkey. To learn more about our organization check out our website at HawassaHope.org
