Run For a Kenyan

September 23, 2017

The Heart of Ghent 10K rings in the fall season with a fit, festive, charitable family oriented run/walk through the historic and scenic Ghent neighborhood. This year, Tree of Lives is a charity partner which means we have an opportunity to raise thousands of dollars to support the Joy Village!

Join the Tree of Lives team and help us reach our goal to raise
$30,000 for 30 kids

at the Joy Children’s Village in Kenya! 

It costs $167 per month to support a child at the Joy Village and only about half of our children are currently sponsored through the Tree of Lives 167 Club. Join us to raise funds to support the rest of our kids while they wait to be connected to long term sponsors! 

There are two ways to join the team:

1. PaRTICIPATE IN THE RUN/WALK 10K or the Kid's Fun Run

  • Race participants can select to have their proceeds benefit Tree of Lives
  • Registrants will also be given the option to join the Tree of Lives fundraising team and start a personal CrowdRise fundraising page



  • Tree of Lives needs a minimum of 25 individuals to fill race day volunteer spots. There are many opportunities that range from pre-race packet stuffers, to water stop volunteers, to course marshals. Each volunteer will receive a free race goodie bag as well as being able to attend the post-race party!


Once you've registered to Run/Walk or signed up to volunteer, please email to be assigned to a joy village team!
