Run With Team Mutomo!

Lining up for the start of the 2012
Team Mutomo 5K.

Team Mutomo, a Visitation student-run group, will host its fourth annual 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 5, as a fundraiser for the group’s trip to Africa in June.  All are invited to participate in this event.  

This year, we will host a special one-mile run for younger kids at 10:15 a.m.  The one-mile course will wend its way through the campus, and kids can hang out in the gym afterwards to wait for their parents who are running in the 5K.

The 5K Fun Run/Walk will take place at 10 a.m., starting and ending at Visitation’s Athletic Foyer.  The one-mile will begin at 10:15 at the Athletic Foyer. The cost per person for the event is $20 until April 3 ($25 on race day). Everyone who signs up will receive a Team Mutomo t-shirt and snacks.  Please click here for a registration form.

 

About Team Mutomo

In June, Team Mutomo will travel to Ndola, Zambia, where they will work with a group of Dominican Sisters who operate orphanages, schools, and medical and dental clinics.  This year, the group’s fourth trip to Africa, Team Mutomo will examine the needs of the clinics, schools and orphanages, and with the Sisters’ input, provide monetary assistance, prayerful support, and physical help with their work. Much of the money that is raised through the team’s fundraisers will be given as a gift to the Sisters in Zambia. 

Families who are unable to participate in the fun run but would like to make a financial donation in support of Team Mutomo’s work may send a check to Visitation School with Team Mutomo in the memo line.
