A female organized and executed event, the GGRF relay features girls from the GGRF Program in Bekoji and international athletes, like YOU.

We're raising $8,000 to fully fund the participation of 40 GGRF Athletic Scholars in completing the first ever Bekoji Ultra Relay.These funds will provide housing, food + fuel, transportation, running gear, and a community celebration after the relay for the GGRF Athletic Scholars. Registration fees for this virtual relay go towards this fundraising goal. Funds raised over $8,000 will go directly towards providing Athletic Scholarships for girls in GGRF's two program locations: Soddo and Bekoji, Ethiopia.
